On Wednesday, United States District Judge J.P. Stadtmueller sentenced Jaboree WIlliams to 30 years in federal prison for sex trafficking.

On Sept. 1, 2017, a jury found Williams guilty of 18 counts related to sex trafficking, heroin distribution and fraud, among others.

According to a press release from the United States Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of Wisconsin, the trial evidence showed that Williams enticed and recruited victims into sex trafficking through force, fraud and coercion. 

Multiple victims testified against Williams, explaining that he would force them to have sex with "customers" and return all of the money to him. 

He trafficked his victims using a website. They were forced to travel to locations across the country, including Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota and Georgia. If the victims ever broke his rules, they testified that Williams would severely beat them.
