Boston Police arrested a Dorchester man earlier this week for Massachusetts Sex Crimes Charges.

The defendant, who was arraigned in the Dorchester Division of the Boston Municipal Court, was arraigned on sex crimes charges including Human Trafficking for Sexual Servitude and Deriving Support from a Prostitute.

According to the Boston Police Department and the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office, police stopped a car for routine civil motor vehicle infractions. A woman passenger in the car who appeared to police to be nervous, was questioned and told police that she had been subjected to prostitution by the defendant. According to the woman, she was forced to buy clothes and take photographs that were posted on various websites advertising escort services.

The defendant, who was held on $75,000 bail, was also reportedly a Level 3 Sex Offender who was previously convicted of Aggravated Rape Charges involving two women when he was 17.

The Massachusetts Sex Crime of Human Trafficking for Sexual Servitude is the act of knowingly subjecting, by any means, another person to engage in commercial sexual activity, sexually explicit performance, or for the production of unlawful pornography.

A conviction for the sex crime of Human Trafficking for Sexual Servitude is punishable by commitment to state prison for not less than 5 years and up to 20 years; and also subjects the defendant to Sex Offender Registration.
