Randolph Man Indicted in Connection with Trafficking Multiple Women for Sex in Greater Boston, Cape Cod
BOSTON – A Randolph man has been indicted in connection with trafficking multiple women for sex in Greater Boston and on Cape Cod, Attorney General Maura Healey announced today.
Marvin Pompilus, (a.k.a. “Kise”), age 31, of Randolph, was indicted Monday by a Statewide Grand Jury on charges of Trafficking of Persons for Sexual Servitude (18 counts) and Deriving Support from Prostitution (12 counts) in connection with trafficking multiple women for sex. He will be arraigned at a later date in Suffolk, Norfolk and Barnstable Counties.
“We allege that this defendant targeted and exploited women and arranged for them to provide sexual services in three different counties for his own profit,” said AG Healey. “Our office is committed to prosecuting human traffickers who exploit and abuse others for their own gain.”
The AG’s Office began an investigation in May 2015 after the matter was referred by the Randolph Police Department. Pompilus was arrested on Aug. 3, 2015 in Randolph by Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Attorney General’s Office along with the Randolph Police.
Authorities allege that Pompilus targeted and recruited multiple women over a two-year period to provide commercial sexual services at hotels and other locations in Randolph, Boston, Braintree and Hyannis. Pompilus would have the women post ads online offering sexual services in exchange for money. Pompilus allegedly kept the money from these sexual encounters, and would provide the women with drugs instead.
This indictment is being handled through the AG’s dedicated Human Trafficking Division, which focuses on policy, prevention and criminal prosecutions. Through that division, the AG’s Office has charged more than 20 individuals, including Pompilus, in connection with human trafficking since the law went into effect in 2012.
These charges are allegations and defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorneys General Nancy Rothstein and Megan Williams through AG Healey’s Human Trafficking Division, with assistance from the Massachusetts State Police assigned to the AG’s Office, the AG’s Digital Evidence Lab, Investigator Michelle Silva of AG Healey’s Financial Investigations Division and Victim Witness Advocate Rebecca Auld of the AG’s Victim Services Division. The Randolph and Milton Police Departments also assisted in the investigation, along with the Department of Homeland Security and the Maine Violent Offender Task Force.
