MIAMI—On June 29,a Miami Beach resident was sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple counts of human trafficking in connection with his coercing numerous women into prostitution through escort services across south Florida from to Robert Atlee Miner V, 30, of Miami Beach, Florida, pleaded guilty to charges of human trafficking, deriving support from the proceeds from prostitution, and money laundering, in addition to other charges, and was sentenced by 15th Judicial District Court Judge Cheryl A. Caracuzzo to 15 years in prison.
A man and his alleged accomplice are facing charges in Miami-Dade after authorities say they were responsible for a sex trafficking case involving an year-old girl. Saint Matthew Hopson, 32, was arrested on charges including human trafficking, sexual battery with a deadly weapon, forcing, compelling, or coercing someone to become a prostitute and unlawful use of a communications device, according to a release from Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. Prosecutors say the victim, who lived in Lakeland, met Hopson through a dating social media platform in January, and he allegedly began grooming the victim by making her believe he was interested in having a romantic relationship with her.
Hopson later drove to Lakeland to meet the victim then drove her to Miami and brought her to a hotel in Miami Springs, prosecutors said. Without the victim's knowledge or consent, Hopson sent the photographs to Thomas and instructed her to post the victim's photographs to an online escort service platform under the title "I'm new to the game," prosecutors said. On January 16, while at the hotel, Hopson had several instances of sexual contact with the victim against her will, prosecutors said.
When the victim told Hopson she did not want to engage in prostitution and wanted to go home, Hopson allegedly told the victim he had just gotten out of prison for human trafficking and kidnapping and he would kill her if she called police, prosecutors said. Hopson then demanded that the victim provide him with the address of one of her family members as potential leverage against the victim calling the police, authorities said.

On February 12, while attempting to retrieve video footage and records from the hotel in Miami Springs, a clerk recognized the name and said that Hopson had just departed the hotel after not being able to pay for the room, authorities said. Miami Springs Police located Hopson and Thomas, who were detained.
When officers searched the car they were in they found a notebook that Thomas indicated belonged to Hopson, containing a hand-written list of laws about being a "pimp," prosecutors said. Authorities said Hopson has a lengthy history of prostitution-related arrests in multiple states and charges for kidnapping.
He also appears to have recently been released from prison and he indicated that he is currently on probation in North Carolina. All parents need to be familiar with these dangers before something terrible or unfortunate occurs to their loved ones.
