Robert King, 53, would check drug rehabilitation centers and group homes for struggling men and offer to help them, then supply them with drugs. When they built up enough debt to King because of their drug habit, King would force them into the sex-trafficking ring.
King, a Danbury resident, pleaded guilty in August to conspiracy to commit human trafficking. But, according to the Hartford Courant, King did not testify against Bemer, a Glastonbury businessman convicted of being an accessory to human trafficking and four counts of patronizing a trafficked person.
On Monday,the year-old Bemer was sentenced to serve 10 years in prison, after he was found guilty in April on four counts of patronizing a trafficked person and one count of criminal liability for trafficking a person.
The sentencing came days after Bemer agreed pay a settlement to one of the victims who had filed a civil suit against him. Bemer agreed to the settlement Friday as the civil trial was about to begin. Bemer is being sued by 14 of the 15 victims of the decadeslong trafficking ring, who claim he had sex with them while he was infected with HIV. The next civil trial in the case is set to begin next month. William Trefzger, 74, of Westport, the third defendant in the case, pleaded guilty to patronizing a trafficked person last year and was sentenced to time served.
