Atlanta Pimp Given Life Sentence for Ruining Life of 14 Year-Old Minor

A 30-year-old Atlanta man was sentenced to life in prison Monday after being convicted of charges related to sexually abusing and pimping a teenage runaway, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office announced and the AJC reported.

A jury found David Pepe guilty of trafficking of persons for sexual servitude, pimping, aggravated child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Pepe sexually abused a 14-year-old who he forced into prostitution within three days of meeting her in April 2009, prosecutors said. The defendant had sex with the teen, took her to pick up customers, took half of the money they paid her and later said he deserved all the money, according to information presented in court.

Text messages that the teen sent to her mother were forwarded to law enforcement authorities, who returned the teen to her family. Pepe was caught during a traffic stop in Cobb County.

The case was the first to be prosecuted by the District Attorney’s human trafficking unit, which was funded by a 2011 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, authorities said.

    hope he become the hooker now.

  7. even if I did have kids- man no person deserves life in prison, not even a murderer- it makes no sense for the average citizen to take care of a person for the rest of their life. a person sitting in prison this long is just taking up space, and it would be better to just kill that person, then make them sit in a cell for the rest of their life.

  8. exactly- recommitting because of other factors- the time dont do nothing for them. they can be locked up for 100 years nd it wont matter if you dont solve the true problems in these people.

  15. Patty Sterner well- imagine if God refused to forgive you your sins and transgression- what then. I believe in Gods mercy. I also believe we need to learn to be merciful to each other. And God clearly told us to forgive us our debt as we forgive those that are endebted to us. Jesus forgave a theif on the cross next to him, so what makes us greater than him…….. thats all Im saying- what gives mankind the right not to be merciful

  17. Patty Sterner I dont know ifyou keep up with groups like the "Innocence Project"; But the innocence project has exonerated more black males, that were wrongfully accused of heinous crimes than any other race. and texas death row has put more black males to death than any other race in its history. Just fyi

    Law Officials from Atlanta would serve the country greatly by forming a taskforce in New Jersey to aid and assist their Enforcement Officers in the apprehension of teenage pimps.
