A Salt Lake City, Utah man has been sentenced to consecutive terms of up to life in prison for sex trafficking a 16-year-old child and exploiting his own adult daughter for prostitution. Joseph Moore proposed that the two girls could make money through commercial sex work. He helped them set up advertising online, transported them along the Wasatch Front for commercial sex appointments, and collected up to half of the profit made from the commercial sex scheme.
A former police vice squad lieutenant was arrested Tuesday following a prostitution sting after investigators say he offered to “manage” women. David Moss, 51, of Lehi, was booked into the Utah County Jail for investigation of exploiting a prostitute, patronizing a prostitute, two counts of lewdness and sexual battery.
When she was 19 she was planning to join the Air Force and moved to California, where she met someone on Tinder and eventually agreed to move in with him. Before she moved in he took her out to a nice dinner, placed her purse with her phone, keys and wallet on his chair and asked her how she was going to pay for what he was providing. “He said ‘OK now you’re going to be a stripper and an escort’ and the only thing I could say was ‘OK,’” Skirvin said. “One of the reasons human trafficking has escalated exponentially is that there is so much reward and there’s very little risk … there is very little chance they’ll get caught, and if they do a lot of times they’re not getting prosecuted,” Reyes said.
One of the victims said Brown threatened her with violence and intimidated her to “go get that money” or “prostitute,” according to a statement released by the office. She said he would use controlled substances as a means to coerce her into working for him in commercial sex.
