25-year-old Ross Campbell of Queens was convicted of forcing several women into prostitution and advertising them on craigslist in 2008. His victims were at least three women, two were 19 and one was 18. Campbell raped the 18-year-old before forcing her into prostitution. She was ‘given’ to Campbell by an associate because the associate owed Campbell money for weed.
Sometimes I am horrified how economics works in the criminal world. What I’m not shocked by is how much of it has taken place on craigslist.
Campbell is looking at 50 years on his convictions of kidnapping and human trafficking.
