Judge Sends Chester Woman To Prison For 15 Years For The Sex Trafficking Of Females

PHILADELPHIA – Rashidah Brice, a/k/a “Camille,” a/k/a “Milly,” 25, of Chester, PA, was sentenced today to 185 months in prison for sex trafficking females for prostitution.  Brice pleaded guilty on August 20, 2013, to sex trafficking of a minor by force and two counts of sex trafficking by force.  She, along with co-defendant Christian Dior Womack, operated a prostitution venture in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere, that recruited young females, one of whom was a minor, to work as prostitutes for them between May 25, 2012 through February 3, 2013.  The defendants engaged in acts of physical violence and threats of physical harm to maintain the participation of females in their prostitution business. 

As part of their venture, Womack and Brice also 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.

In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Court Judge Mitchell S. Goldberg ordered 10 years of supervised release, $35,700 in restitution, and a $300 special assessment.  A sentencing hearing for Womack is scheduled for November 12, 2014.

The case was investigated by the FBI and the Philadelphia Police Department Special Victim’s Unit is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Morgan.
