A Cape Coral man was arrested Friday, accused of threatening a victim of a human trafficking case.

John Allan Wiliams Jr., 20, of the 1900 block of Northwest 22nd Place, was arrested and charged with violation of Florida’s Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act.

He posted $30,000 bond on Saturday and was released from Lee County Jail.

According to Lee County Sheriff’s Office reports:

On Jan. 13 undercover deputies were conducting a prostitution sting and arranged to meet two women in Bonita Springs. They agreed to exchange of sex for money, and were taken into custody.

One woman told deputies “that she was not engaging in prostitution voluntarily but was being made to do so by another.”

On Jan. 28, one victim told deputies someone contacted her, told her Wiliams, whose name also is spelled Wiliams, was making threats to kill her “to prevent her testimony against her suspected traffickers, Naomi Vasquez and Derrick Ned.”

Naomi L. Vasquez, also known as Naomi Jackson and whose booking sheets states her last name is Velasquez, 31, a transient from Fort Myers, was charged with three counts each of forced labor or services by human trafficking and receiving financial benefit from those acts. Bond was denied at the time.

Derrick M. Ned, 33, who has multiple aliases and lists addresses in Labelle and Lehigh Acres, faces the same counts in addition to warrants for fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer and driving while license was suspended. He was denied bond on the two warrants. His arrest report shows federal charges are pending and that he is a flight risk and not to be bonded out of jail.

All three are U.S. citizens. Wiliams was born in Florida.

In the recent arrest of Wiliams, the victim said at first she was involved in the prostitution voluntarily and Wiliams would drive her to various locations for her work. He did so at Vasquez and Ned’s request.

The three defendants would each make efforts to solicit others for the victim. A fee would be paid to Ned and Vasquez or be shared by the three defendants.

In the earlier case, Ned and Vasquez are accused of making the victim and another woman prostitutes themselves.

Four months earlier, a friend introduced herself to an unnamed man who said his wife, Vasquez, operated a business. She agreed to work as an escort. Eventually she was told she would have to prostitute herself to repay some money. After awhile, she had attempted to leave but was threatened. Her family also was threatened and she was not allowed to keep any of the money.

It was unclear Monday whether that friend was Wiliams.

The other woman told deputies she too was introduced by a friend to the man about a month earlier and offered employment as escort. She agreed, but was eventually required to prostitute herself. An unidentified person told her the money was for rent and transportation.

A man “reminded all of the girls that worked for him that he was to be feared.”

The victims are only identified as being adults.
