HOLDING OF APPEALS COURT:
APPEAL STILL PENDING?:
SUMMARY:For a period of several months in early 2010, Christopher Lewis transported a 17-year-old female to hotel rooms, where he ordered her to engage in sex with strangers. Lewis admitted that he led his victim to believe that he would harm her if she refused to participate in the prostitution scheme. Lashad Alexander, who was arrested and charged along with Lewis, had had a woman working as a prostitute for him since 2005, when she was a juvenile, until 2010, by which time she had become an adult. He provided her with condoms, a cell phone, and other items that factilitated her participation in prostitution. He took the payments that she received for sex acts, beat her on occasion, and led her to believe that she would suffer more severe harm if she did not comply.
