SUMMARY:Defendants brought 3 minors, aged 14, 15, and 17, 15 from Honduras into the United States, promising them work at a restaurant and $700/week pay. Once within the United States, the victims were forced to work at a bar, 10 hours a day, 6 days a week for $120/week--most of which was given over to the defendants to pay off the smuggling debt of $4,500. Defendants told the girls that they would make more money if they had sex with the customers, and could keep the money they made from prostitution, minus a $50 fee to be paid to Defendants.
