SUMMARY:Defendant Erik Shamsud-Din used the internet to recruit the prostitution services of an adult and a minor female. He taught the minor how to use the internet to advertise herself. He then traveled with the victims to meet individuals who responded to the internet advertisements. He was romantically involved with the minor who he recruited after she had escaped an abusive pimp in California. Defendant was arrested in Chicago, Illinois but the group had also traveled to New Mexico, California, Arizona, and Texas. Both victims were beaten, given drugs, and were forced to give Shamsud-Din all of their earnings from the commercial sex acts. Defendant pled guilty to transporting for prostitution and was sentenced to 180 months imprisonment.
