CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Women and girls as young as 16 were smuggled into this country from Mexico and brought to Charlotte to work as prostitutes. For $25 and $30, authorities said, they performed sex acts — sometimes with 20 men a day.

Jorge Flores Rojas, a 44-year-old undocumented Mexican national accused of running the sex trafficking ring, has been sentenced in Charlotte to 24 years in prison, authorities said Tuesday. He was ordered to pay $117,000 in restitution to one woman. He also must register as a sex offender.


Flores told federal agents he paid smugglers $2,500 apiece to bring some of the women from Mexico into the United States and deliver them to his apartment in Charlotte. He then forced the women to work as prostitutes in Charlotte; Myrtle Beach, S.C.; and Washington, D.C., court documents said.
