SUMMARY:In November 2009, Defendant Nathan Pope and co-defendant Jan Wales recruited, via the Internet, an 18-year-old woman to work for them as a prostitute in Indiana. Pope transported the newly recruited woman and another woman who was already working as a prostitute for the defendants from Indianapolis to a hotel in Rhode Island, intending to solicit customers in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Pope threatened the new recruit when she tried to leave, by saying he would hurt her family if she didn't engage in commercial sex. Pope assaulted the victim recruit, took her cell phone and money. Pope and Wales pled guilty to conspiracy to transport an individual across state lines to engage in prostitution, in violation of the Mann Act.
