    Oh wow! I hope this means they can find a bunch of missing persons!!! I've often thought that we don't hear much about busting these kinds of crimes.

    It was certainly my first thought, Kimster! I am still looking for other news on the rest of the men. I guess they must have them already in custody. The article stated it was female children and adult women. So far he is only being charged with 16 counts...so I don't know how they consider that to be the "one of the largest", but maybe the others have racked up more.

    Man wanted in sex case

    One of six people charged by federal authorities in a Texas human trafficking ring may be on the loose in Tulsa, the FBI said. Ronnie Presley, 35, and five others are charged with several counts of trafficking women and children for sex. Federal authorities accuse them of operating sex businesses in Houston disguised as modeling studios, spas, massage parlors and bikini bars. Officials ask anyone with information on his whereabouts to call the FBI in Oklahoma City at 290-7770 or Tulsa Crime Stoppers at (918) 569-2677.

    If this guy was operating out of that many cities why are they concentrating still in Tulsa? The very nature of what he does is mobile, why would he stick around? Had I not come to this site I would be unaware of this creep yet he has crossed the map from one side to the other and the police are still looking in Tulsa?

    Andre McDaniels, 42, and William Hornbeak, 36, entered guilty pleas Sept. 13, and 24, 2012, respectively, while John Butler, 51, Ronnie Presley, 38, and Jamine Lake, 30, pleaded guilty Oct. 4, 2012. The five men, all of Houston, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit sex trafficking. In addition to the conspiracy charge, Butler was convicted of one count of transportation. Lake was also convicted of one count of transportation as well as one count of coercion and enticement. Presley and Hornbeak were both also convicted of two counts of coercion and enticement, while Presley was also convicted of two counts of transportation. McDaniels was convicted of one count of coercion and enticement and two counts of transportation.

    Today, U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes sentenced McDaniels, Lake and Presley to 96-month-terms of federal imprisonment. They each received 60 months on the conspiracy charge and 96 months on each of their respective convictions, all to be served concurrently for a total sentence of 96 months for each defendant. They were all also ordered to serve a 10-year-term of supervised release following completion of their sentences and must each pay a $10,000 fine.
