Two men were sentenced to lengthy prison terms after they pled guilty to federal sex trafficking charges earlier this summer.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 30-year-old Robert Tillman of Sacramento, CA and 23-year-old Brandon Campbell of Troy, NY were also ordered to pay thousands of dollars in restitution to the victims of their crimes.
According to a press release, the two first started their scheme in Arizona and Utah, but eventually brought it to Wenatchee and Pasco.
They would post ads online and then force the women to perform sexual acts in Eastern Washington hotels.
Sometimes they would also hide in the room and rob the men.
The case was investigated and prosecuted by multiple Eastern Washington law enforcement offices.
