Another Sentencing In Memphis Sex Trafficking Ring

The Justice Department says another person has been sentenced in a sex trafficking ring in Memphis.

Cristina Andres Perfecto was sentenced in federal court this week to 190 months in prison for sex trafficking by force, fraud and coercion, sex trafficking of a juvenile and conspiracy.

Perfecto’s co-defendant, Juan Mendez, was sentenced to 50 years in prison last June after pleading guilty to child sex trafficking and sex trafficking by force, fraud and coercion.

Perfecto and Mendez each admitted to fraudulently luring two young girls, including a 13-year-old, from rural Mexico to Tennessee with the intent of forcing them into prostitution.

Nine other defendants have pleaded guilty in the same case for child sex trafficking and other crimes.
