SACRAMENTO— On September 12, 2023, Antonio Long Andrews, 29, of Sacramento, was sentenced to more than 19 years (235 months) in prison and 20 years of supervised release for sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion, according to the United States Attorney’s Office.

According to evidence presented at a 2022 jury trial, between August 2017 and December 2018, Long used force and coercion to convince a female to engage in commercial sexual acts for his financial benefit. As part of Long’s pimping operation, he put the victim in motel rooms around the state of California and had her engage in prostitution acts on the street in order to make money. Long ran his pimping operation in Sacramento, Oakland, San Jose, and Orange County.

According to evidence presented at trial, on September 28, 2018, as part of his sex trafficking operation, Long repeatedly punched the victim inside his car in the parking lot of a motel. During the attack, the victim tried to exit the car, but an associate of Long kept her inside the car while Long continued to beat her. An eyewitness saw the attack, and the motel’s security camera recorded the victim being dragged under Long’s car. Although the victim was injured and had two black eyes, a week later, Long had continued to engage her in commercial sex acts for his benefit.

During recorded calls from the Sacramento County Jail, Long maintained control over the victim, conveying that she was expected to earn money for him by selling her body to strangers. After Long’s release from the Sacramento County Jail, Long continued his exploitation of the victim from late November 2018 until his arrest on December 5, 2018.  At the sentencing hearing, the judge noted that Long saw the victim as property and took advantage of her so he could make money.
