APPEAL STILL PENDING?:
SUMMARY:Defendant Aaron Brown was arrested in 2008 on charges of sex trafficking of children and transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity. He allegedly controlled a prostitution operation, for which he forced females to engage in commercial sex acts. He also took sexually explicit photographs of the minors, which he used to advertise the operation. He beat the victims with cords and wire hangers if they kept prostitution earnings from him. After pleading not guilty to all charges originally, he eventually pled guilty to Transportation of Child Pornography, and was sentenced in 2011 to 15 years in prison.
