FBI Makes Arrests in Sex Trafficking Operation

In Houston, when we think of traffic, we think of road construction and car accidents and general gridlock. It’s annoying, but generally not life threatening.

The FBI, on the other hand, deals with trafficking…of the human variety and Friday they made a bust they hope will put a serious crimp in that “business.”
United States Attorney Jose Angel Moreno announced the arrests of Pedro Corporan Cedano, 38, a citizen of the Dominican republic for conspiracy to commit sex trafficking and Carmen Angeles, 33, a U.S. citizen born in the Dominican Republic, for harboring aliens.

Additionally, nine women illegally in the U.S. were rescued from apartments allegedly controlled by Cedano.
The arrests and the rescues were the result of an investigation by members of the Human Trafficking Rescue Alliance, a group made up of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
If convicted of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, Cedano could get up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Angeles faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted of harboring aliens.
