Abdul Bangura Jr. (left) and Christian Hood (right) were sentenced to prison.

Recent news from the Department of Justice:

A Virginia man was sentenced [July 20] to 186 months in prison and 10 years of supervised release for multiple crimes related to the prostitution and exploitation of a 15-year-old minor. Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney G. Zachary Terwilliger of the Eastern District of Virginia, and Assistant Director in Charge Nancy McNamara of the FBI’s Washington Field Office made the announcement after the sentence was handed down by U.S. District Judge Anthony J. Trenga of the Eastern District of Virginia.
Abdul Karim Bangura Jr. aka “AJ”, 22, of Triangle, Virginia pleaded guilty in August 2017 to all counts of an indictment charging him with sex trafficking of a minor, conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of a minor, interstate transportation of a minor for the purposes of prostitution, and production of child pornography.
According to admissions made in connection with his plea, Bangura and his co-defendant Christian Hood conspired to recruit a 15-year-old girl to work as a prostitute and to advertise her prostitution services on Backpage[dot]com. Bangura also transported the minor to hotels in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. for prostitution dates, and he took a portion of the money she made from commercial sex customers. Bangura also used a phone to record a video of himself having sex with the minor. In August 2017, Hood was convicted at trial of sex trafficking and conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of this same minor.

The Washington Post covered Hood’s trial last year:

The teen took the witness stand Wednesday in federal court in Alexandria. Shaking at times, she described being prostituted around the Washington area by two brothers she met at a Virginia motel.
Identified only as Danielle H. to protect her identity, the now-16-year-old testified that one of the brothers, Christian Hood, posted ads for her on the website Backpage earlier this year. His half brother Abdul Bangura was her boyfriend and her pimp, she said. . . .
The first time [she met Hood], Danielle testified, was in February when she was living in an Econolodge Inn in Dumfries, Va., with her aunt. . . .
According to court documents, Hood promised her “money and progress” and asked her to send him photos he could post on Backpage.
In her Backpage ads, the 4-foot-8-inch Danielle was advertised as “fun size” and “unforgettable.”
“This is a case about how an adult man exploited a vulnerable 15-year-old girl,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle P. Reynolds said in his opening statement. Danielle, he said, was “naive” and “immature.”
Bangura admitted that he would act as “security” for Danielle, driving her to motels, checking in on her during paid dates, providing her with condoms and taking a portion of the money she earned. At night, they slept together.
“I’m really starting to catch some feelings,” she said in one text conversation. “I may not seem like the girl for you, but I am.” . . .
She is pregnant with his child, according to court documents.
Prosecutors said that Hood was involved in prostituting four other people on Backpage. He allegedly sent a text message in March asking someone named “Peach” for help finding more women: “ask the homies out there if they know any freaks that’s trynna work on bp I’ll show you how to make the ads n all that.” . . .
Danielle said she had previously been prostituted on Backpage when she was 14, by another pimp named T.J. According to the testimony of FBI agent Alix Skelton, Danielle’s mother also was involved.

Feminists haven’t mentioned this story, for some reason.
