SUMMARY:Defendant Andrew Blane Fields sold drugs such as Oxycodone, Dilaudid and Morphine to numerous young women in order to get them addicted. He then forced them into prostitution to pay off their debt. He coerced the victims to engage in commercial sex by threatening to withdraw the drugs and subject them to painful and debilitating withdrawal symptoms. Fields would prey on young vulnerable women and recruited them by promising to help get them off the streets. Defendant seems to have harbored some of the victims in his trailer home in the Tampa Bay area. Defendant was convicted by a jury of five counts of sex trafficking and additional narcotic related offenses. He was sentenced to 405 months imprisonment.
