Sex Trafficker Pleads Guilty In Manhattan Federal Court To Victimizing Minor Girls And Adult Women For Nearly Two Decades

Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced that GREVY GERARD PIERRE-LOUIS, a/k/a “Cadillac Slim,” a/k/a “Caddy,” pled guilty yesterday before Chief United States District Judge Colleen McMahon to conspiracy to commit sex trafficking and conspiracy to transport minors interstate for the purpose of prostitution. 

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said:  “The defendant spent most of his adult life profiting from his victimization of girls and women through extreme physical and psychological abuse.  All the while, he bragged about being a pimp and a player.  Thanks to the extraordinary work of the FBI, the defendant’s so-called game is now over, and he will face the consequences of his actions.  We can only hope that the defendant’s guilty plea brings some measure of justice for the survivors of his vicious crimes.”

According to the Indictment, Superseding Information, publicly-filed documents, and statements made in court:

Starting in or about 1998 and continuing through 2016, PIERRE-LOUIS compelled his victims to engage in prostitution through extreme violence, psychological and verbal abuse, coercion, and threats of violence to them and their family members.  PIERRE-LOUIS victimized girls and women in numerous states, all for his own profit.

PIERRE-LOUIS, 46, of Queens, New York, was arrested on August 17, 2016, and has been in federal custody since.  PIERRE-LOUIS pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison; and one count of conspiracy to transport minors interstate for the purpose of prostitution, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years in prison, and a maximum sentence of life in prison.  The maximum potential sentences are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as any sentencing of the defendant will be determined by the judge.

PIERRE-LOUIS is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge McMahon on December 12, 2018.

Mr. Berman praised the outstanding investigative work of the FBI.  Mr. Berman also thanked the New York City Police Department, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida, the Miami Field Office of the FBI, the United States Secret Service, the City of Miami Police Department, the Miami Beach Police Department, and the Miramar Police Department for their cooperation throughout the investigation. 

The prosecution is being handled by the Office’s Violent and Organized Crime Unit.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Amanda Kramer and Jessica K. Fender are in charge of the prosecution.
