Statement from Acting U.S. Attorney Joshua S. Levy on Criminal Complaints Against Alleged Sex Buyers in Boston Commercial Sex Ring Prosecution

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Massachusetts

“Our office made it clear when we announced charges of a commercial sex ring case on Nov. 8, 2023, that the investigation was ongoing and that there would be accountability for the buyers who fuel the commercial sex industry. Today, a Homeland Security Investigations Task Force Officer with the Cambridge Police Department submitted applications for complaints against 28 sex buyers with the Cambridge District Court. Until probable cause has been found, no names will be released. If probable cause is established and criminal charges are issued by the Court, referrals will then be made to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.
In addition, we are working closely with Virginia state authorities to begin the referral process of sex buyers from the Virginia locations in this case. 
The referral processes will remain ongoing.”
