A Florida man faces life in prison for luring women into his prostitution ring that he operated along Interstate 95.
One of the victims alleges he forced her to have sex with 100 men in a matter of days.
Robert Miner promised the women lucrative gigs as models, dancers and escorts, but then posted the victims’ pictures on backpage.com and forced them into prostitution, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
One 22-year-old Orlando woman was told she would be a swimsuit model. Instead Miner picked her up at a bus stop in Fort Lauderdale,, then he drove her to a hotel room, where he pulled out a hunting knife and raped her.
Police said she was forced to commit sex acts with 100 men in four days.
June 16, she managed to escape, and called Fort Lauderdale police to report Miner.
Aged 18 to 22, five victime told authorities that Miner duped them into working for him. They were forced to perform sexual services for $50 to $140 at hotels along I-95 because they “made more money,” he said, according to court records.
One woman said she was forced to whore herself out over 12 hours a day, from early evening, until early the next morning.
Bank records revealed Miner, 27, deposited more than $225,000 between January 2015 and his arrest Sunday, with no evidence he had an actual job, according to Florida’s attorney general. He allegedly kept all the money the women made and only gave them cash to pay for the hotel room.
The Deerfield Beach creep also is accused of flying one woman to Las Vegas for prostitution and pressuring another into getting a tattoo of his name.
He promised the women a “program” in which they could earn a car and a condo — if they earned $20,000 a month, according to the Palm Beach Post. Instead, they lived in hotels.
“Just because I’m a gentleman doesn’t mean I’m not grimey,” he allegedly texted one of his victims in June. “I grew up in the streets and done everything.”
Miner, who’s being held in Palm Beach County Jail, faces up to life in prison.
