Really? Only 11 years! One of three who was arrested and convicted of trafficking young gay men and forcing them to work 20 hours a day as sex slaves…only got an 11-year-sentence…
This was the first sentence for someone in Florida like Andras Janos Vass, 26, who enslaved gay men. One of the three victims testified that he was locked in a room and worked for little or no pay other than extra food and cigarettes. “They used me like I was a machine. They sold me to strangers. I was not allowed to be tired. I was not allowed to be sad.”
Vass said, “I know very well that I am culpable. After I do my time, I would like to start a new clean life and I’m asking for God’s help and I pray every day for forgiveness.”
