For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of New York

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,” was sentenced to 30 years in prison for conspiracy to commit sex trafficking and conspiracy to transport minors interstate for the purpose of prostitution.  PIERRE-LOUIS pled guilty on September 6, 2018 before Chief U.S. District Judge Colleen McMahon, who imposed today’s sentence. 

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said:  “Grevy Gerard Pierre-Louis spent almost 20 years engaged in depraved and extraordinarily violent sex trafficking of minor girls and adult women. As a result, he will now spend the next 30 years in prison. Our hope is that the brave survivors of the defendant’s heinous crimes will find a measure of justice in today’s sentence.”

Chief Judge Colleen McMahon called today’s sentence “just punishment for the ruination of all of those lives.”

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

Starting in 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 at least nine girls and women in numerous states, all for his own profit. 

PIERRE-LOUIS employed a variety of criminal methods to compel his victims to engage in prostitution.  He used physical violence, sexual assault, threats of physical violence, threats of deportation, emotional and psychological abuse, and threats against family members.  For example, in addition to severe beatings and rapes, at various points he had his victims branded with tattoos; he hung one victim out a window; and he caused victims to kneel on dry rice so as to inflict severe pain.  The defendant kept all of the proceeds of his victims’ trafficking.

In addition to the prison term, PIERRE-LOUIS, 47, of Queens, New York, was sentenced to 10 years of supervised release and ordered to pay restitution to his victims.
