A Nevada man is accused of running a human trafficking scheme that brought girls across the country to D.C. — and that he promoted with videos boasting of his prowess as a pimp.
Prosecutors say Jermaine Jack, 33, recruited young girls in Las Vegas and brought them to a hotel in Rockville to sell them for sex, reported News4’s Erika Gonzalez.
Jack used videos to convince girls that joining his operation was the ticket to a better life, prosecutors said. In one, he’s seen standing in front of a luxury SUV, with what appears to be a joint in his hand, boasting.
“I want to make an impression, a good impression, everywhere I go,” Jack says in the video. “I am truly blessed, I will tell you that much.”
He says he wants the same for the girls — as long as they join his scheme. “If you really want something out of this game … it starts with you,” he says.
