The Defendant Advertised (the Victim) On The Internet For Commercial Sex, Including In Lansing, Michigan, And He Paid For The Advertisements Using Debit Cards, Hessmiller Wrote In The Plea Agreement That Rush Signed.

Attorney’s Office said. Warning signs of sex-trafficking of minors http://michiganmedicalmarijuana.biz/ includes seeing a man with many teens, particularly girls, buying alcohol, cigarettes, condoms, girls’ clothing, hair and nail supplies, and prepaid gift cards that can make untraceable purchases, including online advertisements offering prostitutes. Pimps often use a teen girl or young woman as an intermediary to approach teens looking to make money. They’re often promised cash, food, housing and “love” or “friendship,” authorities say. “The sexual exploitation of minors and adults is a reoccurring menace to Michigan communities and has lasting damaging impacts on its victims,” David Gelios, FBI special agent in charge in Detroit. “Drugs and physical violence were just some of the tools Mr. Rush utilized to coerce the victims in this investigation.” Once, Rush, suspecting that one of the teens stole a designer belt from him, kept her cell phone, which led to a “physical altercation.” He had forced her to prostitute herself to cover the cost of his belt. He also put her in internet ads. “The defendant advertised (the victim) on the internet for commercial sex, including in Lansing, Michigan, and he paid for the advertisements using debit cards,” Hessmiller wrote in the plea agreement that Rush signed. In another instance, he assaulted the girl, then punched her in the face while they were in the car. He left her at a library then tried to get her back to continue working as a prostitute.
