Man convicted of forcing woman into prostitution
Dec. 24, 2015
DEDHAM, Mass. (AP) — A Randolph man has been found guilty of human trafficking and deriving support from prostitution.
The state attorney general's office says a Norfolk Superior Court jury convicted Ryan Duntin this week after a five-day trial.
Authorities say the 33-year-old Duntin recruited a woman for prostitution and forced her to perform sex acts in hotels for money.
Duntin drove her to several Massachusetts communities, including Tewksbury and Braintree. Prosecutors say he watched over the money and took the proceeds, and frequently used violence and threatened her.
Duntin was arrested in September 2013 and indicted the following October. He is expected to be sentenced Tuesday.
