    The New York Daily News ^ | 2011-06-25 | Mike Jaccarino
    It's been seven months since an 11-year-old vanished from her Bronx home for five days - but horrific details of how she was turned into a sex slave are just emerging. Lured from home by a sexual predator, the fifth-grader was pimped out to a series of men in a lower East Side flat. "One man gave me $700, another gave me $1,000 and another gave me $500," the girl told the Daily News, which is withholding her name. "Maybe there were five or six men, in all." The ordeal ended after the victim managed to call her grandmother. When...

    The Albuquerque Journal ^ | June 24, 2011 | James Monteleone and Jeff Proctor
    It wasn’t about the money for a pair of aging academics, police say, so much as it was about creating a place on the Internet for men and women to meet for sexual encounters without the prying eyes of law enforcement. Call it a cyber version of “The Dating Game” in which the host doesn’t get paid. Except the men were johns, the women were prostitutes, and the whole operation was a complex, online network of illegal activity. The two aging academics were a pair of longtime university professors who, according to law enforcement, were online pimps operating and moderating...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Former University of New Mexico President F. Chris Garcia was arrested and jailed Thursday in connection with a multistate, online prostitution ring that authorities say was run by a physics professor from New Jersey. Police said Garcia, 71, and Fairleigh Dickinson professor David Flory, 68, were among seven members identified in the top echelon of the ring. Six have been arrested, and warrants have been issued for one more, Albuquerque police Chief Ray Schultz said. Investigators said the ring had some 1,400 members, including 200 prostitutes, but there was no indication that any other universities or students...

    A modified Scope of Work for a U.S.-funded study of both homosexual long-haul truck drivers and female prostitutes in Angola was released this week by the Obama Administration. The updated solicitation (#2011-94188) refers to "men who have sex with men," or MSM, rather than "homosexual," and identifies prostitutes solely by the term "young women involved in transactional sex." The initiative is a component of the multi-billion-dollar, five-year President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, or PEPFAR, via the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which was launched by the White House under George W. Bush. # # #

    San Francisco, CA (AP) -- A divided California Supreme Court has refused to narrow the definition of illegal pandering. The court ruled 5-2 on Thursday that pimps who recruit working prostitutes are just as guilty of pandering as those who recruit victims new to the trade.

    The Daily Beast ^ | 05/18/2011 | Michael Medved
    The 2012 presidential candidate has gone off the deep end in defending the right to sell sex and drugs as personal liberty—and stretched libertarianism past the breaking point, writes Michael Medved. How would you describe a perennial presidential candidate who insists in a televised debate that government has no more right to interfere with prostitution or heroin than it does to limit people’s right to “practice their religion and say their prayers”? The phrase “crackpot” comes immediately to mind—and in any contemporary political dictionary that term would appear alongside a photograph of Congressman Ron Paul. The Mad Doctor, who proudly...

    HONOLULU — A longtime friend and golfing buddy of President Barack Obama pleaded no contest on Monday to a misdemeanor charge of soliciting a prostitute in Hawaii but was given a chance to expunge the case from his record. The plea of no contest was entered on behalf of Robert "Bobby" Titcomb, 49, by his lawyer in a Honolulu courtroom, but the judge granted a defense request for what is called a deferral of judgment.

    Seattle police have released a photo of John Hauff Jr., the man charged with kidnapping, raping and assaulting a woman in what they describe as a torture room at his Tacoma property. Sgt. Sean Whitcomb said photos of Hauff's property, his dark green Mercury Sable station wagon and Hauff himself were released Tuesday afternoon to try to reach possible victims. A spokesman for King County Prosecutor Dan Donohoe said police had referred no additional cases.

    When she first showed up at Children of the Night, a privately-funded residential facility, Jane was angry. Arrested more than 20 times as a prostitute, she had been hardened by the street. She threw things at her counselors. Everyone was terrified in having to deal with her. “She was just afraid. She was use to being treated so rough,” said Lois Lee, the Los Angeles group’s founder and president. “She didn’t know what to do with someone nice.” Jane, not her real name, was just 14 when her life was hijacked in Seattle by a 36-year-old man who said he...

    SAN DIEGO (Reuters) – Three dozen Crips street gang members and two motel owners have been indicted for running a prostitution ring that targeted underage girls through social networking sites including MySpace, Craigslist, Twitter and Facebook, prosecutors said on Monday. The U.S. District Court indictment, unsealed on Monday, alleges that several former rival factions of the gang worked together to recruit new prostitutes by targeting underage girls from broken homes. Writing letters from prison as well as establishing contact using MySpace, Twitter and Facebook, the gang members gained control over the girls and then advertised them using Craigslist and Backpage.com,...

    PROGRESSIVE WANTS TO RESCUE MOTOR CITY WITH SEX AND DRUGS Could Detroit become America’s version of Amsterdam? As far as oft-mayoral candidate Geoffrey Fieger is concerned, why not give it a shot? Feiger, who gained notoriety as Jack “Dr. Death” Kevorkian’s attorney, believes that legalizing pot and prostitution would attract young people to Detroit, which would turn the decaying city around “in five minutes.” “I could turn it around in five minutes. I’d shovel the snow and I’d clean the streets and parks. Then, I’d tell the police department to leave marijuana alone and don’t spend one dime trying to...

    HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - One of President Obama's closest friends is scheduled to appear at Honolulu District Court next month, after he allegedly solicited sex from an undercover officer posing as a prostitute.

    Cristina was just 24 years-old, living in a rural farming village in Mexico, when Amador Cortes-Meza told her he was falling in love with her. He promised her marriage and a good job, and then brought her to the United States. But when she arrived in the Atlanta area, he physically abused her and forced her to work as a prostitute. “That's when I realized he was not telling me the truth,” said Cristina (not her real name). “A man who loves a woman would not make them do that. I lived under his humiliation, I lived under the beatings,...

    A woman was arrested in Kissimmee on Thursday after police said she sold an 88-year-old man oral sex, and then returned a month later to violently rob him after he didn't pay up. Kissimmee police were called to the Elizabeth Avenue home of the elderly victim on March 11. The man told officers that he had been attacked and robbed by a woman later identified as 41-year-old Tanya Ross. According to police reports, Ross forced her way into the victim's home, knocked a phone out of his hand when he tried to call 911, and then grabbed him by the...

    Nevada’s state-regulated brothels uphold a vital institution in the American West’s most remote state, finds Rachel Ray. In February, US Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada native whose mother took in washing from whorehouses during his youth to support her family, proposed to a silent Nevada legislature that the world’s oldest profession should become illegal in the Silver State. “He’ll have to pry the cathouse keys from my cold, dead hands,” was one brothel owner’s reported retort to Reid’s suggestion. Nevada is the only US state with legalised prostitution, which is heavily regulated and confined to rural counties with...

    The man accused of bringing young girls from Mexico to the Atlanta area and forcing them to become prostitutes was sentenced to 40 years in prison Thursday. Amador Cortes-Meza, 36, was the leader of a sex trafficking ring that brought 10 victims to Georgia, where they were beaten and forced to have sex with about 40 men a night, according to U.S. Attorney Sally Q. Yates. The victims testified that they lived in Norcross homes. One victim testified that when she refused to engage in prostitution, Cortes-Meza threw an iron at her head, then denied her medical care. Other victims...
