Vincent “King Koby” George Jr., 35, and his father, Vincent “Vee” George Sr., 55, appeared before a State Supreme Court in Manhattan to answer to charges of sex trafficking, money laundering and other crimes. The defendants faced 25 years in prison.
While they were convicted of promoting prostitution and money laundering, they were acquitted of sex trafficking charges.
Sex trafficking laws effective in 2007 requires proof that the pimps coerced prostitutes to perform sex for money.
The three white prostitutes prosecutors identified as victims – Danielle Geissler, 31, Heather Keith, 28, and Desiree Ellis (mid 20s) – testified on the defendants’ behalf.
Sentencing is scheduled for July 8, 2013. They face up to 15 years for the other charges.
