Corey Hannah, 34, met the girl when she was just 14, and over several months raped her and forcibly made her have sex with other men in hotel rooms, prosecutors said.
He met the 21-year-old woman through a dating service in 2015, prosecutors said. They went out to dinner and spent the night together. The next day, Hannah allegedly stole her purse and told her if she wanted it back, she’d need to work as a prostitute for him.
Hannah brutally controlled these women, threatening to kill them if they didn’t heed his commands, prosecutors said. Once, he allegedly choked the 21-year-old; he burned the 15-year-old girl with a lit cigar.
He also kept all the money that the woman earned through prostitution for himself, prosecutors claim.
Hannah was arrested on sex trafficking, kidnapping, and rape charges relating to the 21-year-old victim last month, and was arraigned Monday for a second indictment in connection with the 15-year-old girl.
