They pimped more than just their rides
From the NY Post:
A father and son from Queens ran a lucrative — and cruel — brothel on wheels for two decades, using six livery drivers to deliver hookers to hotels and apartments, Manhattan prosecutors said today in announcing the ring’s breakup.
In a sick twist, the dad, Vincent George, Sr., 55, not only taught Vincent, Jr., 33, how to pimp, but may at one point have either employed his own daughter as a hooker or pawned her off on yet another pimp, prosecutors said, declining to elaborate.
Johns on the go could purchase and enjoy a sex act without ever leaving the back seat, officials said of the operation, quoting the price scale at $200 to $500 per customer.
Business was good — one woman alone allegedly earned half-a-million dollars for the father and son last year, and the Georges employed five women at the time of the bust, officials said.
But as nice as they were to customers, the alleged father and son pimps were nasty to their prostitutes, threatening them, giving them little money so as to keep them helpless and even branding them with tattoos — including a bar code on one woman’s neck, according to officials.
The father and son “trafficked” their women from Queens and from Allentown, Pa., into the city, forcing them to solicit Johns at upscale hotel bars and outside of strip clubs, officials said.
The women were made to pass out cards reading “Professional Masseuse,” according to court documents.
