Two Men Charged With Sexual Servitude

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Sexual servitude is a new crime recently added to the books in Nashville.

And for the first time in Metro two men now face those charges.

Police said Jesus Miguel Garcia and Arturo Garnica Perez held a woman against her will for years and forced her into prostitution.

She told police they threatened to hurt her family if she didn't do what they wanted. She also claimed they tortured her with ice picks.

"There are those who say prostitution is a victimless crime. This certainly shows that it is not," said Metro police spokesman Don Aaron.

The two men and the woman are all being held because police believe they are in this country illegally.
