Pimp who ‘bought’ young woman for $2,000 and advertised her on Craigslist is sentenced to 25 years

A Queens pimp who “bought” a young woman for $2,000 – and advertised her sex services on Craigslist – was sentenced to 25 years to life.

David Brown, 32, paid $2,000 to an ex-girlfriend for the 19-year-old victim, who was described as homeless and vulnerable.

He took nude pictures of the victim and then posted them online, advertising the woman as a sex slave.

Over 12 days in August 2008 she was forced into sex with 30 men, and Brown collected payments ranging from $60 to $200, prosecutors said.

Brown was convicted on sex trafficking, kidnapping and other charges. He was the first to be charged under a new harsh sex-trafficking law signed by disgraced ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer in June 2007.

Ironically, Spitzer was forced from office less than a year later after being identified as “Client 9” – the patron of a $5,500-an-hour call-girl ring.

“You are a con man of the first order,” Queens Supreme Court Justice Michael Aloise told Brown. “I’m going to do my best to insure that you never see the light of day again.”

Brown blamed his troubles on a spiteful ex – the woman prosecutors said sold him the woman.

“I did not do the crime,” Brown said. “This was straight jealousy from an old girlfriend that I left. I never touched [the victim.] I never kidnapped her.”
