SUMMARY:In 2005, Defendants Alex Babaev and his partner, Asker Mammedov, plead guilty to charges of sex trafficking. Between 2003 and 2004 the defendants brought women to the United States from Azerbaijan, using promises, threats and violence to coerce the women into coming with them. The women were openly recruited to work as prostitutes in the United States, however after arriving the defendants took all of the victims' money instead of the 50% agreed upon. The defendants maintained control over the victims by threats, force and confiscation of identification such as passports. Babaev was sentenced to 20 years in prison, Mammedov was sentenced to 10 years in prison and $325,000 restitution. The restitution order was vacated and remanded for further proceedings (the lack of a payment schedule was deemed to be inconsistent with the District Court's other findings, the Appeals Court had no issue with the amount).
