Md. man sentenced to 20 years for sex trafficking

GREENBELT, Md. (AP) — A man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for sex trafficking and related offenses.

Thirty-two-year-old Jean Claude Roy of Germantown, also known as “Dredd the Don,” was sentenced in federal court in Greenbelt on Tuesday.

Authorities say Roy transported girls across state lines to engage in prostitution, and physically and sexually abused, threatened and branded them. Authorities say while in jail, Roy called someone and asked that person to access online accounts to destroy evidence relating to his charges.
