Illegal Alien Living in Kentucky Sentenced in Sex Trafficking Ring
An illegal alien living in Kentucky has pleaded guilty in a sex trafficking case that spanned several counties. Adulfo De Aquaino-Cancino was indicted by a grand jury over the summer.
According to an affidavit, between August 2011 and January of this year, he recruited females, arranged for commercial sexual encounters, transported, and financially benefited from the sex trafficking ring.
In an interview with Kentucky State Police, the 28-year-old illegal immigrant from Taylor County admitted he picked up underage girls in Campbellsville and took them to different locations where they would have sex with his friends. The acts occurred in Taylor, Green, Adair, and Barren counties.
Cancino was sentenced this week in federal court to seven years in prison.
