SUMMARY:

Andre Lavon Taylor ran a business he described as an "escort service" that employed women who engaged in illegal prostitution. Most of his activities were conducted in San Francisco and Las Vegas. One of the women he employed was Meagan Fischmann, whom he met in Las Vegas in May, 1997, when she was 16. He purchased an airline ticket for her, and they traveled together to San Francisco, where she worked as a prostitute. Although Fischmann was arrested and sent back to her home in Florida, it appears that Taylor then arranged for her to travel back to Las Vegas, where she again engaged in prostitution.
