Wisconsin Man and Woman Sentenced For Human Trafficking

United States Attorney Joseph P. Kelly announced today that on March 22, 2018, Brandon Carr, age 32 of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Tiera Rowsey-Harris, age 25 of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were sentenced for transporting an adult female in interstate commerce with intent to promote prostitution.  United States District Court Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Carr to a 27-month term of imprisonment and Rowsey-Harris to a 13-month term of imprisonment.  After their release from federal prison, Carr and Rowsey-Harris will begin 3 and 2 year terms of supervised release respectively.

An investigation conducted by the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force determined that between the dates June 13, 2017, to on or about June 16, 2017, Carr and Rowsey-Harris transported an adult female from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Omaha, Nebraska.  On June 16, 2017, the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force was conducting undercover prostitution enforcement operations in Omaha, Nebraska, when the adult female traveling with Carr and Rowsey-Harris was arrested for soliciting prostitution from an undercover Task Force officer.  Carr and Rowsey-Harris were subsequently arrested and charged with transporting the adult female from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Omaha, Nebraska for the purpose of engaging in prostitution.

This case was investigated by the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force, which included Task Force Officers from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Omaha Police Department, Nebraska State Patrol, and Douglas County Sheriff’s Department.
