A 29-year-old Jamaica man has pleaded guilty to sex trafficking for forcing a girl—who was 14 years old at the time—in 2016 into having sex with him on multiple occasions and with various men in exchange for money that he pocketed, the Queens district attorney said.
Reagan “Flex” Conception pleaded guilty on April 12 before Acting Queens Supreme Court Justice Peter Vallone to one count of sex trafficking. Vallone indicated that he would sentence the defendant to an indeterminate term of six to 12 years in prison when Conception returns to court on May 9 for sentencing.
Conception admitted that between September and November 2016, he forced the 14-year-old girl to engage in prostitution acts with other men. When she did not comply with his demands, the defendant would threaten and physically assault her.
Criminal Possession Of Stolen Property
Three Jamaica men have been given prison sentences for selling stolen Econoline vans to a scrap yard for cash, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.
Aziz Salaam, 43, who lives on South Road in Jamaica, was convicted in March of five counts of falsifying business records, criminal possession of stolen property and unauthorized use of a vehicle before Queens Supreme Court Justice Daniel Lewis, who sentenced the defendant to up to two years in prison.
Two other men—Jamaica’s Keith Royster and Steven Fields—have also both pleaded guilty and been sentenced to one year in jail.
On five separate occasions between June 17 and June 27, 2016, Salaam brought in a total of five Econoline vans that had been reported stolen to a scrap yard in Ozone Park. On June 17, the defendant submitted a falsified MV35 form—which is used by a vehicle owner who can’t produce a valid title of ownership for transfer to a vehicle dismantler or scrap processor—and his driver’s license. The defendants then submitted falsified MV35 forms and a driver’s license on several dates to sell the stolen vehicles.
