SUMMARY:

Victims told law enforcement that defendant had been prostituting them and also transporting them across state lines in order to engage in prostitution. Defendant kept extensive records of his actions.

A trial, some of the victims were also called by the defense and contradicted their earlier testimony. They testified that Anderson was not a pimp, but a professional gambler, and that they had never worked for him as prostitutes. Several women claimed that they had been pressured by the government to testify against Anderson.

A jury found Anderson guilty on all counts except obstruction of justice.
