In April 2012, Datqunn Sawyer aka P Child was sentenced in federal court to 50 years in prison on multiple sex trafficking convictions he received in November 2011.

Sawyer, also a rapper known as P Child, beat, pimped, threatened and branded girls  ages 12 to 19 with the names he gave them. After his own P Child nickname, each was given a name he chose that started with a "P" including Precious, Paradise, Pooh, Peaches.

Chicago Tribune Reporter Annie Sweeney states:  One of his alleged prostitutes, a 19-year-old girl who went by the name of “Pooh,” testified that when she was 12, Sawyer befriended her and took her to his apartment where he lived with at least half a dozen other girls. She saw him throw a girl down a set of stairs, breaking her arm, she said.  Sawyer sold the girls dreams with promises of love, care and bright futures that quickly turned to nightmares.

Pooh, whose real name is Angelique, was soon put on the streets to prostitute. Her quota – was to service (have sex) with five to 15 men every day, she testified.  Pooh stated that when she had a “good day,” she said she was rewarded with McDonald’s.

The Reporter goes on to detail that Sawyer impregnated 3 of the girls:  Shawna, known as "Peaches", was pregnant with Sawyer's baby and was shown in a surveillance video wearing a strapless, colorful shirt pulled over her large, pregnant belly, shorts hugging her upper thighs. She was pregnant with Sawyer’s baby as she looked to turn tricks, she said, at his demand. “My ankles were hurting. I was tired, it was hot,” the doe-eyed Shawna testified. “We didn’t have no food. I needed to eat. So I needed to work.”

Observers state that Sawyer cried and sobbed throughout as he told the Judge he never knew that some of the victims were minors.  Sadly, Sawyer's supporters blamed the victims for the criminal and inhumane acts Sawyer committed against them.

These girls are somebody's daughters. Many questions come to mind as to how something like "Sawyer" was even able to get his hands on them and keep them....Hummm, "Family", or should I say some families are not what family use to be huh?
That is a whole-nother discussion.

The 50 year sentence Sawyer received was thought to be the harshest sentence handed down to date for sex trafficking.

 Fast-forward to November, 2012 and another (Alex "Cowboy" Campbell) gets a Life Sentence.
 
Dare I believe the system is finally saying you can't do this to our children?
Does this apply to all traffickers? Let's hope so!

more to come

Convicted Pimp Sentenced to Life in Prison

Convicted Pimp Alex "Cowboy" Campbell received a "Life Sentence" for Trafficking. He beat, raped and tortured women into prostitution.  His "ego" was his undoing.

Chicago Tribune Annie Sweeney reports on the sentencing:   U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman recounted how Campbell forced the women to be tattooed in highly visible places — horseshoes stamped into their necks or in one case... a 13-line, 60-word homage to Campbell down a woman's back. Somethings are just outrageous!

"I think the worst thing you did to these girls, frankly, is branding them the way you did," Gettleman said before imposing a life sentence on Campbell. "They can't get rid of those tattoos. … They have a life sentence, all of them. Every time they look in the mirror. … And it's gonna hurt. Their life sentences compel a life sentence for you."

Justice is served!!

Someone's LIFE depends on your VOTE!


Your VOTE can mean the difference between all women having protections from violence, abuse and trauma or not.

VAWA protections for all victims has been under a sustained attack. The failure to pass the Senate version of VAWA continues to put lives in jeopardy. The passing of VAWA was deliberately held up. 

Your Vote is Your Voice!


LEARN THE FACTS ABOUT WHAT IS IN JEOPARDY!!   
 
There are some people who do not believe all women are worthy of protection. They also believe that there are some batterers and violators of women that should not be held accountable!!

These same people hope that pouring floods of money in to support a different agenda, that President Obama will be replaced. If their tactics succeed, they know they will be able to roll back protections contained in the Real VAWA. The Real VAWA, the Senate version of VAWA holds all abusers of women accountable for their actions and the Real VAWA says all women must be protected.
