Tampa Brothers Sentenced To A Total Of Seventy Years For Sex Trafficking Conspiracy

 Tampa, Florida – U.S. District Judge Susan C. Bucklew has sentenced Antawan Hudson (31, Tampa) to 30 years in federal prison for sex trafficking minors. On September 28, 2016, Hudson’s brother, Maurice Williams (26, Tampa), was sentenced to 40 years in federal prison for sex trafficking minors. Hudson pleaded guilty on the first day of trial and a federal jury found Williams guilty on May 20, 2016. 


 

According to evidence presented at trial, Williams conspired with Hudson to traffic underage females by fraud, force, and coercion in the commercial sex trade. Williams and Hudson worked together to post online prostitution ads for the victims and then transported the girls throughout central Florida to have sex with customers. After the victims had sex with the customers, Williams and Hudson took some or all of the money and, in exchange, offered the victims drugs, alcohol, and beauty appointments. 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Stacie Harris and Daniel George.     

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.  Led by United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit www.justice.gov/psc.
