The so-called "johns" who fuel the sex-for-pay trade were not left out of a slew of crackdowns on the industry scheduled to coincide with the Super Bowl as hundreds were rounded up in a multistate sting operation, authorities said Thursday.
An 18-year-old has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for throwing a punch in a St. Cloud alley that killed a college student.
A former Illinois spa and massage parlor owner who used violence and threats of violence to force three women from the Ukraine and one from Belarus to work for him without pay and, at times, little to no subsistence over a two-year period was sentenced Monday to life in federal prison without the possibility of parole, the Justice Department said.
He said Harris County law enforcement arrested 48 johns.
Cook County, Ill., Sheriff Thomas J. Dart, whose office initiated the investigation, said he was "extremely proud" of the effort and resolution of all the agencies involved with the successful investigation, conviction and sentencing "of such a violent individual."
