SUMMARY:

The three defendants, all Mexican nationals, are brothers who forced one 16-year-old girl and another teenager from Mexico to come to the United States with promises of legitimate employment. Defendants used a combination of physical abuse, threats, and isolation to force both victims to prostitute themselves in Atlanta, Georgia. One of the victims was lured to the United States with promises of long-term romance. The victims were forced to perform commercial sexual acts with between 10 and 25 men per day. Defendants kept all of the proceeds. Brothers Jose Reyes Rojas and Juan Reyes Rojas were both sentenced to between 57 and 71 months incarceration; Raul Reyes Rojas remains a fugitive on the run.
