Two men associated with the Fairfax County-based Underground Gangster Crips (UGC) set have pled guilty to participating in a prostitution business that recruited and trafficked high school girls, according to announcement by officials including Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and Fairfax County Police Chief Colonel David Rohrer.

On at least two occasions, in 2009 and 2011, Dove harbored juveniles, ages 16 and 17, while they were engaging in commercial sex acts. He also admitted to purchasing a credit card that was used to pay for advertisements on Backpage.com to solicit customers for the prostitution enterprise.

On May 14, 2012, Henock Ghile, aka “Knots,” 23, of Springfield, pled guilty to sex trafficking of a juvenile. In court, Ghile admitted that he was a UGC gang associate and that from May 2011 through September 2011 he transported two 17-year-old girls to work as prostitutes. Sentencing has been scheduled for Aug. 3 before United States District Judge Claude M. Hilton.

On April 14, two others associated with the UGC prostitution operation — Michael Tavon Jefferies, aka “Loc,” 21, of Woodbridge, and Christopher Sylvia, 23, of Springfield — pled guilty to sex trafficking of a juvenile.

This case was investigated by the Fairfax County Police Department and the FBI’s Washington Field Office, with assistance from the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Task Force.

Special Assistant United States Attorney Marc Birnbaum from the Virginia attorney general’s office and Assistant United States Attorney Inayat Delawala are prosecuting the case on behalf of the United States.
