An Albuquerque man accused of running a sex trafficking ring has pleaded guilty to conspiracy and faces 17 years in prison, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Cornelius Galloway, 37, admitted that he and others operated a prostitution ring that used force and threats to compel women to engage in sex for money, which they were not allowed to keep, according to his plea agreement. Galloway admitted that members of the ring advertised the services online and arranged meetups in hotel rooms.
His wife and co-defendant, Danielle Galloway, pleaded guilty in August to conspiracy to commit sex trafficking and is awaiting sentencing. Two other co-defendants are awaiting trial, which is set for August.
