Sex trafficing Ring
« on: January 05, 2019, 11:50:31 AM »
The Rendon-Reyes family operated their sex trafficking ring for over a decade in the streets of Jackson Heights and now they’ll learn their fate this week after they plead guilty to human trafficking and money laundering.
“They forced them to abort, they beat them with baseball bats to ensure they continued to abide by what they were required as it pertains to prostitution,” said Angel Melendez, Special Agent In Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in New York City.
They used fear and intimidation to not only force their multiple victims into prostitution but also to become their personal sex slaves, according to prosecutors.
“Some of these women were required to perform sexual acts 45 times a night,” said Melendez. “In one instance, they took the victim in a van and she would be prostituted multiple times by several clients that would be standing outside in a line waiting to have sex with this victim”
From 2004 until 2015, they ran brothels in New York, Georgia and Alabama, prosecutors said. They would traffic women, including underage girls from Mexico and force them into sex work, luring them with promises of a better life.
“They operate as a family business,” said Melendez. “They are brothers, one sister and the remaining four are cousins.”
The eight defendants all face charges of sex trafficking and money laundering. Sentencing is expected to last until the end of the week.

i can't tell what the maximum sentence is here, but it should be levied. and if there's a way to enforce consecutive sentences, please let that happen.

I just did a search and found very little reporting on this case. That's surprising to me, because it affected so many girls' and women's lives in such a horrifically brutal way.

This article gives some details about the sentences:

Appalling. Thanks for surfacing this post again.

Local news cover it. Pix11 especially:

https://pix11.com/2019/01/03/sentencing-hearing-begins-for-human-trafficking-ring-that-ran-like-family-business-in-queens/

Two years ago Breitbart was covering it:

https://www.breitbart.com/border/2017/04/22/mexican-nationals-plead-guilty-international-sex-trafficking-ring/

They included all the names:

"Prosecutors from the Eastern District of New York originally charged defendants Jovan Rendon-Reyes, 33, of Mexico; Saul Rendon-Reyes, 39, of Queens; Guillermina Rendon-Reyes, 46, of Mexico; Francisco Rendon-Reyes, 28, of Queens; Jose Rendon-Garcia, 34, of Mexico; Felix Rojas, 47, of Mexico; Odilon Martinez-Rojas, 45, of Mexico; and Severiano Martinez-Rojas, 52, of Mexico in 2015. Law enforcement officers in the U.S. and Mexico simultaniously arrested the suspects in a bi-national operation in November 2015.

...Two of the defendants, Odilon Martinez-Rojas and Severiano Martinez-Rojas, were also involved in a separate sex trafficking case in Northern Georgia in 2013. Odilon Martinez-Rojas received a 262-month prison sentence in 2014 while Severiano Martinez-Rojas remained a fugitive until November 2015."

I searched for photos of the accused. I actually want to see for myself the faces of people who can prey on vulnerable girls in this way. Does the evil show on their face?

ICE got this guy:

Thanks for the links. I did see that Breitbart had covered it.

I understand your wanting to see their faces. But we see the faces of evil all the time in the news. What always strikes me is that, with a few exceptions, they always look like they could be anyone I'd pass on the street.  :-\
