Sex Trafficking

Jimmy Lee Jones operated a sex trafficking operation for five years, forcing four women and two minor girls, to have sex in exchange for money. He promised them jobs as models or exotic dancers, but used abuse and deception to force them to work as prostitutes instead. When they refused to have sex with his clients or himself, he beat them. He was charged with sex trafficking and the commercial exploitation of minors across state lines and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
