SUMMARY:Defendants Nathaniel Roberts, Tavoris Roberts, Patrick Bullock, Shermaine Aiden, and Johnny Turrentine each pled guilty to one charge of conspiracy to commit human trafficking involving force or coercion with sentences ranging from 41 months to 72 months. Defendants set up a prostitution ring in which they controlled the women through violence and forcing them to give up all the money they earned. The group called themselves the "Wolf Pack" with Nathaniel Roberts as the self-proclaimed "mastermind." The group, operating out of Columbia, Tennessee from 2008-2010, used backpage.com and craigslist.com to advertise the victims.
