SUMMARY:29 individuals were indicted for crimes relating to sex trafficking of minors. The individuals were members of three gangs called the Somali Outlaws, the Somali Mafia and the Lady Outlaws. Defendants forced American and Somali minors as young as 12-years-old to engage in commercial sex acts without older men throughout Tennessee, Ohio, and Minnesota. The defendants coerced the victims into prostitution by giving them drugs. They recruited some of the victims after the victims had runaway from home. After a jury trial, three men were convicted and six were acquitted.
