"Fla. Man Sentenced For Having Sex Slave


Since law enforcements' attention is being focused in this direction, wonder how many more cases will come to light??  Also wonder how many missing US children have fallen to human trafficing in foreign countries?



"Fla. Man Sentenced For Having Sex Slave


POSTED: 6:39 am EDT August 2, 2006

A North Fort Myers man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for his role in harboring a 13-year-old girl kept as a sex slave and housekeeper.


U.S. District Judge Virginia M. Hernandez Covington gave Fernando Pascual, 22, what she considered a lenient sentence Tuesday. As part of a plea deal, Pascual pleaded guilty in March to charges of sex trafficking and harboring an illegal immigrant for commercial gain. His sentence of 10 years was in exchange for the victim not having to testify because she was traumatized, Covington said.


"These are truly horrible crimes you have committed and they will not be tolerated in the United States," Covington said.


Pascual, his sister, Matilde Pascual Andres, and Andres' husband, Pascual Miguel Sebastian, were charged in May 2005 with harboring a young girl in a Cape Coral home. Prosecutors said the girl was bought in Guatemala and brought to Cape Coral, where she was raped, beaten and forced to work."..................

By gosh, Konane, this news is just simply literally, making me cry with anger against that criminal! And crying for that girl. I hope she comes out of this strong and successful anyway, in spite of it.

For that woman harboring, aiding, and abetting any crime against any younger female, shame on you, and hope you get what you deserve!

What goes around comes around and since time which is measured by us as events has sped up it will come back to her sooner than later!
