SUMMARY:
The defendants were convicted as part of an interstate conspiracy to operate a prostitution ring out of Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The defendants were convicted for recruiting, transporting, controlling and physically abusing the women in a conspiracy which lasted 17 years, starting in 1980, and stretched across almost half the country.  The prostitution ring employed adults, but also frequently recruited minors as well, and controlled them through threats, psychological coercion and frequent physical violence.

 On appeal, the court affirmed the convictions and sentences of Derry Evans, Terrance Roberts, and Johnny Lee Evans The court also affirmed the convictions of Monroe Evans and Clem Evans, but reversed for resentencing and remanded to the District court with respect to the counts they were sentenced in violation of the Ex Post Facto Clause.
