Two additional men have pleaded guilty to participating in a prostitution business that recruited and trafficked high school girls in Fairfax County.
Donyel Pier Dove, 27, pleaded guilty Thursday to the sex trafficking of a juvenile for his role as a bodyguard in the gang Underground Gangster Crips (UGC), which was engaged in sex trafficking of juveniles and adults from April 2009 through March 2012, according to officials.
He also pleaded guilty to several other charges, including the use of a firearm during a crime of violence in relation to two armed robberies of 7-Eleven stores in Manassas, police said.
Dove faces a minimum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum of life on the use of a firearm charge and a maximum of 10 years in prison on the possession of a firearm charge. He is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 10.
Henock Ghile, 23, pleaded guilty Monday to the sex trafficking of a juvenile. Ghile admitted in court he was a UGC gang associate and transported two 17-year-old girls to work as prostitutes from May 2011 through September 2011.
His sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 3.
Two other UGC associates, Michael Jefferies and Christopher Sylvia, pleaded guilty on April 14 for their roles in the gang's prostitution business.
