APPEAL STILL PENDING?:
SUMMARY:The victims, two Mexican nationals, were transported to Southwest Florida through illegal smuggling by Eliseo Escalante Santizo, who recruited the women by promising them they would work picking berries. Defendant Santizo was a family friend of the victims. Once they arrived, Santizo instead sold to Quintin Orozco who intended to force them to work as prostitutes. The victims were told they had to pay off their smuggling debts of $2,700. The women, a 14-year-old and a 24-year-old, escaped after Orozco took them to buy lubricant, paper towels, thong underwear, and miniskirts. Santizo entered a guilty plea to alien smuggling and was sentenced to 9 months in prison. Human trafficking charges against him were dropped. Orozco was never apprehended.
