Judge Fashions Long Prison Term For Sex Trafficker

PHILADELPHIA – Christian Dior Womack, a/k/a “Gucci Prada,” 30, of Chester, PA, was sentenced today to life in prison for sex trafficking females, including a minor, for prostitution.  Womack pleaded guilty, on July 23, 2014, during jury selection for his federal trial.  He operated a prostitution venture, in Philadelphia and elsewhere, recruiting young females, one of whom was a minor, to work as prostitutes. He also engaged in acts of physical violence, coercion, and threats of physical harm to maintain the participation of the females.

U.S. District Court Judge Mitchell Goldberg sentenced Womack to life for sex trafficking of a minor, and for sex trafficking by force.

Charged with Womack was Rashidah Brice, a/k/a “Camille,” a/k/a “Milly,” 24, also of Chester, PA.  As part of their venture, Womack and Brice allegedly created internet advertisements in which they advertised these females as available for purchase for purposes of prostitution.  The advertisements featured pictures of the females scantily clad, and provided a phone number to call to arrange a meeting with the females. Brice previously pleaded guilty.  She was sentenced in October to 185 months in prison.                              

The case was investigated by the FBI, the Philadelphia Police Department Special Victims Unit, and the Tinicum Township Police Department.  It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Michelle Morgan and Melanie Babb Wilmoth.
