APPEAL STILL PENDING?:
SUMMARY:Defendant Davis (a.k.a. Magnificent), a resident of New York, pleaded guilty in a case involving the forced prostitution of minor and adult women in New York, Connecticut, and Texas. Authorities charged Davis under the TVPA as he was forcing girls as young as 12 to work as strippers, dancers, and prostitutes for up to twelve hours a day. After each shift, Davis confiscated all of the victims' earnings. When the victims were not working, Davis confined them to a locked house in Queens, New York. To maintain control over the victims, Davis repeatedly assaulted those girls and women who broke house rules. In one instances, Davis assaulted a 17-year-old victim by placing a handgun in the girl's mouth. Davis pleaded guilty to one count of sex trafficking and was sentenced to over twenty-four years imprisonment. A fund for victims was created from Davis' profits. Defendant Shamere McKenzie was forced into prostitution and forced to perpetuate sex trafficking by the pimps in the sex ring. McKenzie pleaded guilty to Conspiracy to Transport Minors for Immoral Purposes and was sentenced to five years probation.
