The New York Post reports that:
[Gerardo Flores] Carreto and his older brother, Josue, pleaded guilty last year to being the ringleaders of the sex trafficking scam that pulled eight women, including their wives, into the country from Mexico. The judge also threw the book at the older Carreto, 36, sentencing him to the same half-century prison stint.
Once they were brought in, the unsuspecting women were ordered to turn tricks at brothels in Queens and Brooklyn for $35 a pop, sometimes dealing with up to 20 "johns" a day, authorities said.
All the money they earned went to the Carreto brothers and their brothel manager, Daniel Perez Alonso, 26, who was sentenced to 25 years.
