Prison for NY-Mexico human smuggling conviction

The matriarch of a family-run prostitution ring has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. Authorities say the enterprise women from Mexico to New York, where they were sometimes violently coerced to perform sex acts.

Consuelo Carreto Valencia had pleaded guilty in Brooklyn last July to one sex-trafficking count.

2 of Carreto’s sons and a friend pleaded guilty previously to more than two dozen criminal counts. The sons were sentenced to 50 years and the friend to 25.
