SUMMARY:

Defendants, part of an organization called Please Talk Paper (PTP), recruited women and minor girls to serve as prostitutes. They advertised their prostitutes on backpage.com and operated out of national and international hotel chains in two Florida counties (mostly Broward, occasionally Miami-Dade). Members of PTP included pimps and head prostitutes (called "bottoms"), and members collaborated with each other regarding internet advertising, surveillance at the hotels, and detection of law enforcement. They also shared condoms, computers, and prostitutes. Three of the defendants worked as pimps, and the other two worked as head prostitutes ("bottoms"). All five defendants entered into plea agreements.
