A Queens man who helped his brother run an international sex-trafficking ring can now rot with him behind bars. Manhattan Federal Court Judge Katherine Forrest gave Bonifacio Flores-Mendez, 34, the same sentence she gave his fellow ringleader brother, Isaias life in prison.
The Mexican national lured vulnerable women to the U.S. and then sexually exploited them beating and abusing them if they resisted. On one occasion, the feds said, he even tried to run a woman over with a car.
One of the victims sent the judge a letter recounting when Flores-Mendez forced her to stay in a windowless rat-infested room with her baby.
For two weeks I sat awake at night, afraid to sleep, clutching my baby in my arms so the rats wouldnt bite him, the woman wrote.
She was starved for days and then pushed into prostitution. She said Flores-Mendez and his brother forced her to have sex with 15 to 35 men a day, seven days a week, and kept the money for themselves.
Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said Flores-Mendez, 34, waged a decade long campaign of terrorizing women, and Forrest's sentence will ensure he does not prey on more women or children.
Are these ‘acts of love’ the kind you be talkin’ about Jeb?
About as loving as this man is “Queens”!!
A fitting sentence.
Too bad Mexico can’t be billed for it. Why not return him to Mexico. Via trebuchet.
The U.S. is also stuck permanently with all of these brothers’ victims. It’s not like these illegal alien women testify and then go home. They’re here to stay now, no doubt all legalized in some green card category.
Imagine a giant ballista...
When will we have enough?
I don’t know why NYC is being so harsh on these two ,, in Florida our law enforcement openly allows Mexican pimps to haul their women around to the farmworkers camps ,, they are all teenagers ,,, the mexicans don’t want older women.
they are all teenagers ,,, the mexicans dont want older women.

A ‘luxury’ one can ‘afford’ in a Capitalistic Society.
You can get what you are willing to pay for.
In a Communist or Liberal or Utopian Society, the ‘lady may be free’ BUT if the next one is fat and 90 you must take it as it is her turn and in Utopia, everyone is treated equally.
Unfortunately, too many of "us" are patronizing this industry, with no regard for this.
You are correct, of course. It is prevalant enough to make it profitable.
