Irvin controlled the women with a harsh list of rules including requiring the women to give him all money made from prostitution activities and not being allowed to leave the house on their own. When victims broke Irvin’s rules, the punishment included beatings, anal rape, being forced to strip naked and stand in the corner, being tied to the bed, and psychological and emotional abuse. Women working for Irvin witnessed him beating other women and became fearful of leaving him or disobeying his orders. In asking for a 15-year sentence, prosecutors wrote to the court, “Unquestionably, Irvin is a predator who has a long history of assaulting and exploiting young women….[H]e treated the victims herein like chattel, beating and belittling them into servitude.
