SUMMARY:Between 2005 and 2007, Defendant Kevin Murphy, ran an escort service out of Toledo, Ohio under the names "Janelle's Sophisticated Ladies" and "Erotic Angels." His victims included several adult women and one minor female. At various times, he transported the victims across state lines to Peoria, Illinois and Washington and Dearborn, Michigan to engage in commercial sex acts. Defendant sold the women at several Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity conventions, forcing them to dance and strip for convention attendees. Murphy pled guilty to three counts of transporting an individual for prostitution, and two counts of transporting a minor for prostitution. He was sentenced to 120 months imprisonment.
