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…

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.”
