DaJuan BrownDajuan Brown is accused of plying women with heroin, then forcing them to work as prostitutes against their will, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The Cook County Sheriff’s office was tipped off by a source about Brown’s alleged illegal prostitution ring in his apartment.  Police investigators obtained a warrant after interviewing a few of Brown’s “employees.”  The women told authorities that the 35-year-old was not only forcing them to sell their bodies for his monetary gain but that there was also illegal drug activity going on at the residence.

When police descended upon Brown’s apartment, two of the women who worked for him were taken from the premises and will be treated by the Sheriff’s Department of Women’s Justice Services (DWJS), a program that enables a multidisciplinary treatment team to quickly identify a female inmate’s immediate needs, then develop individualized treatment and discharge plans for community re-entry.  The women who are in the program have non-violent charges.

Brown was immediately taken into custody and charged with 10 counts of involuntary sexual servitude and one count of aggravated human trafficking, both class X felonies, each count punishable by up to 30 years in prison.

Certainly no stranger to the court system, Brown had been arrested 20 times in the past with charges ranging from weapons offenses, armed robbery and aggravated discharge of a firearm.

Brown is expected to appear in bond court on Wednesday morning to face his charges.

Meanwhile, a similar case occurred last year in Cook County, where a man who was also charged with human trafficking related charges was found guilty and sentenced to 18 years in prison. This was the first conviction of its kind in the county.
