SELECTED CASE LAW
In 2018 NSPC 10, Mr. G pleaded guilty to advertising sexual services, materially benefiting from human trafficking, receiving a benefit from a prostitution offence, and uttering threats. Mr. G was between 22 and 23 at the time of the offences. He met the complainant, Ms. O, when she was 20 years old and she lived with him and his mother over two separate periods. The first time they lived together, Mr. G posted online advertisements for Ms. O’s sexual services. She attended as many as 20 calls a day and contracted HIV during this time. Mr. G kept all of her earnings which were estimated at $40,000.
The second time they lived together, Ms. O had posted on Facebook that she needed some-where to live and Mr. G had assured her he could live with them again and he would not expect her to provide sexual services for money. During that time Mr. G placed additional advertisements online and Ms. O was expected to take calls. He took all over her money, which was estimated at around $10,000 and did not provide her money for food. He and his brother discussed killing her in front of her.
Mr. G was sentenced to 30 months of incarceration, 24 months of probation, and ancillary orders, including a 10 years weapons prohibition, 20 years registered as a sexual offender, a DNA order, and a no contact order with the victim and one witness while in custody.
