Reports have confirmed that Houston rapper Yung Corleon has been sentenced to 27 years behind bars for his role in a sex trafficking ring that involved twelve women, including minors.
Corleon, whose real name is Aryion Jackson, pleaded guilty in a federal court to sex trafficking minors, forced fraud, and coercion. Prosecutors allege that Corleon beat and drugged his “captives,” including a 15-year-old still missing. He ran his business from a Houston home, forcing the women to earn him $1K daily.
The cause behind the 24-year-old’s 27-year sentence has been controversial in Houston, as many locals pushed for the defendant to get life behind bars rather than the bare minimum for the alleged crimes.
