SUMMARY:Defendant Williams transported a 15 year-old-female and an adult female across state lines between Illinois, Indiana, Texas, Arizona, and Nevada for the purpose of prostitution. Williams took all of the women's earnings from the sex acts, which was his only source of income. The women were arrested in 2001 for soliciting two Las Vegas Detectives for Prostitution, and Williams was later found guilty of five criminal charges in 2003, including Sex Trafficking of Children, and sentenced to 125 months. After the 9th Circuit remanded for a new trial in 2008, Williams was convicted of the same charges and sentenced to a longer term of 210 months of prison because he was designated a career criminal. These convictions were upheld on appeal.
