PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A Chester, Pa. woman has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for sex trafficking women for prostitution.
Rashidah Brice, a/k/a Camille, a/k/a Milly pleaded guilty on Aug. 20, 2013 to sex trafficking a minor by force and two counts of sex trafficking by force.
The 25-year-old, along with her co-defendant Christian Dior Womack, operated a prostitution venture in Philadelphia and the surrounding area between May 2012 and February 2013.
Officials say Brice and Womack used physical violence and threats to maintain the participation of the women. The two also created internet ads that pictured photos of the females scantily clad with a phone number to call to arrange for a “meeting.”
In addition to prison, Brice also received 10 years of supervised release and will have to pay $35,700 in restitution and a $300 special assessment.
Womack’s hearing is scheduled for Nov. 12, 2014.
