SUMMARY:Three victims, all women in their early to mid-twenties, were forced to perform commercial sex acts by Derrick Ned and his wife Naomi Vasquez. Two of the women were recruited by Ned with promises of drugs, then were forced to pay him back for the drugs by prostituting themselves. The other was promised a job as a lingerie model. When she tried to leave, Ned refused to let her go and said that he owned her. Ned used violence and threats of violence to force the women to work for him. At least two of the women claimed that they were never allowed to keep any of the money they earned through prostitution. Ned and Vasquez pled guilty to Conspiracy to Commit Forced Labor. They were sentenced to 57 and 15 months respectively.
