Miami Dade State Court | 17067
In Florida, Gabor Acs (left) and Viktor Berki (right) were found guilty of human trafficking, conspiracy and racketeering in February and have now been sentenced to 30 years in prison. They preyed on young Hungarian men in their 20s who had moved to the US to start a new life.
They would meet their victims online, through social media sites, and would promise them a visa and free flights to the US if they carried out ‘legal escort work’ but the hopeful young men were forced into sex slavery and were made to perform multiple sex acts for up to 20 hours a day, either over webcams or with clients.
Five of the victims were forced to live in a one-bedroom apartment. While there they were fed extremely little, and were not paid. The abuse continued for years until the ring moved from Miami to New York. They attracted attention when they started a car washing service, presumably using their slaves to do the work.
