A federal jury has found a Stone Mountain man guilty of running a violent sex trafficking operation in Atlanta.
Solomon Manessah Mustafa, 38, was convicted of sex trafficking, kidnapping, transporting women across state lines for prostitution, document servitude, and enticement of a minor for sexual activity.
“This defendant brutally assaulted young women to force them into acts of prostitution in three states,” U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said in a statement. “While all of the victims managed to escape from the defendant, many were beaten, raped, handcuffed and forced to snort cocaine by the defendant and his co-conspirator. Now, he faces a lengthy sentence in federal prison.”
