"There is no man that will make me hate him so much, that I stoop to his level."
A Kentucky Cardiologist pleads guilty:
Last month, a Kentucky cardiologist and his ex-wife pled guilty to recruiting a Bolivian woman to work as their domestic servant and holding her unlawfully for nearly 15 years. The couple took her passport, threatened her with deportation, and falsely promised that her wages were being put in a bank account.
HUMAN TRAFFICKING AT ITS WORST
In December 2012, Terrence Yarbrough, aka “T-Rex,” was convicted in federal court on 10 counts of sex trafficking. Witnesses at his Memphis trial testified how he lured vulnerable women as young as 15 into prostitution with false promises of love, family, and money. Anytime a victim refused, Yarbrough countered with threats, intimidation, and violence. The jury heard from victims who recounted that they were beaten with belts, wooden coat hangers, crowbars, padlocks, and dog chains. They also testified to being thrown down stairs, having their heads smashed into car doors, having their legs burned with irons, and being scalded with boiling water. More details
