SUMMARY:Nine defendants, all illegal immigrants, were charged wih conspiring to smuggle and harbor illegal aliens from Honduras to Fort Worth, Texas, under the false pretenses that they would work as waitresses. Once in U.S., the 52 victims were forced to entertain men in bars in order to pay off their fake smuggling debts. Only one victim mentioned prostitution. The women were held captive and were constantly watched. In September 2002, 6 of the 9 entered guilty pleas. Four defendants pled guilty to conspiring to smuggle and harbor illegal aliens; one defendant pled guilty to smuggling illegal aliens; and another pled guilty to transporting illegal aliens. Defendants were sentenced to terms of incarceration up to 63 months.
