SUMMARY:Defendant Charles Kizer induced the 18-year-old complaining victim, who was addicted to crack cocaine, to engage in commercial sex with other men in Arkansas and Tennessee in exchange for crack. He maintained control of her by threats, intimidation, locking her in his home, and physical violence. There was evidence that he had done the same thing to at least one other woman. Kizer controlled the complaining victim in this way for less than a month starting in August 2010. On September 1, 2010, the victim called 911 and Kizer was eventually arrested. He pleaded guilty to transporting someone across state lines for the purpose of prostitution, in exchange for the others being dropped. He was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.
