SUMMARY:Defendants Deric Willoughby, Brandy Shope, Jennifer Huskey were indicted for forcing, over a period of 10 days, two minor girls (ages 14 and 15) to prostitute themselves at a Michigan truck stop and at hotels in Toledo, Ohio. Defendant Willoughby provided the girls with false identities, which they were instructed to use in the case they were detained by law enforcement. According to a Department of Justice press release, Willoughby controlled the victims through threats and physical assaults. Shope and Huskey monitored the girls, collected money from patrons, and also participated in commercial sex acts that the girls were forced to perform. Authorities alleged that Defendant Gordon, a truck driver, transported the victims to a Michigan truck stop, where he engaged in commercial sex with one of the girls. Defendant Willoughby pleaded guilty to interstate transportation of minors for prostitution and conspiracy. The outcomes for the remaining defendants are unknown.
