Crime News That Matters

Backpage pimp was running ring from prison

Martin Eddie Herrera

28-year-old Martin Eddie Herrera has been in a Texas prison since 2007 on multiple aggravated robbery charges. Apparently, this hasn’t stopped him from running a criminal enterprise that deals in the trading of people.

Using multiple cell phones that were smuggled into prison, Herrera was allegedly able to run a Backpage prostitution ring in San Antonio from his cell. His victims include at least one 17-year-old girl who was advertised on Backpage. Herrera was also said to tell his lackeys in a written letter…

…“the biz must go on, the hustle must go on,” and “keep the others motivated to stack paper”.

I thought prison mail was constantly checked for this exact reason, or is this another luxury prisoners have now? Also, how are so many convicts hiding cell phones from the prison itself?

I’m surprised Backpage isn’t taking up his legal defense stating that his First Amendment rights are being violated.
