33-year-old Tyrone Waite of Jamaica, Queens was sentenced to up to seven years behind bars for being a craigslist pimp and lying to a grand jury. Not only was he a craigslist pimp but he was trying to pimp out a 13-year-old girl on craigslist. At the time of his arrest, he also had naked pics of the 13-year-old on his laptop.
As a special bonus the D.A. pontificates on prostitution being referred to as a victimless crime.
“Prostitution is not a victimless crime but a terrifying and despicable offense against society practiced by callous people who enslave young women without hope and victimize them one day at a time”, district attorney Richard A. Brown said. “This guilty plea and sentencing allowed the young victim to avoid testifying at trial and hopefully will help her to recover from her ordeal.”
