APPEAL STILL PENDING?:
SUMMARY:The six charged defendants, all Mexican citizens, lured young Mexican girls and women into the United States under false pretenses and then forced them into prostitution. In one case, a minor victim was smuggled while she was still 15 and forced into prostitution by Jose Luis Moreno Salazar who had lured her from her family by claiming his love for the girl and promising to marry her. Once in the US, the women were forced into prostitution in Houston area bars, through physical violence and threats. The defendants maintained their control over the women through threats of harm, physical force and psychological coercion. The beatings were done with a belt, a wire hanger or a cable. The victims lived in apartments leased by the defendants and were transported to bars for the purposes of prostitution. The defendants collected from the women and girls all of their prostitution proceeds. The sex trafficking organization operated from the early months of 2004 until the summer of 2005. Defendant Gerardo “El Gallo” Salazar, the uncle of Angel Moreno Salazar and the father of Juan Carlos Salazar, was the leader of the sex trafficking organization.
