A Queens man who bought a woman for $2,000 and forced her to work as a prostitute is the first person to be convicted under New York's new sex-trafficking law, authorities said yesterday.
David Brown, 32, of St. Albans, paid an old girlfriend for the troubled 19-year-old woman and forced her into the sex trade in 2008, said Queens DA Richard Brown.
The woman was compelled to have sex with about 30 men over 12 days, charging between $60 and $200, which she gave to David Brown, according to the DA.
He faces up to 25 years in prison after being convicted Tuesday on charges including kidnapping and sex trafficking.
