#sextrafficking | Second man involved in running Pa. human trafficking and prostitution operation sentenced: police | #tinder | #pof | #match | romancescams | #scams



A man who ran a human trafficking operation in parts of central and southeastern Pennsylvania was sentenced Thursday to a minimum of 55-and-a-half years in prison.

Barry Charles Schiff, 52, whose sentencing was delayed several times since March, had remained in custody at Lancaster County Prison while he awaited sentencing. Kenneth James Crowell, 35, his partner, was sentenced to a minimum of 39 years in prison in March.

Both men were convicted in November 2017.

Authorities, who began investigating suspicious web advertisements known to be associated with sex trafficking, discovered the two men ran a prostitution and human trafficking operation in Lancaster, Montgomery, Philadelphia, and York counties. Undercover Troopers, who work for the Pennsylvania State Police, Bureau of Criminal Investigation, Special Investigations Unit, began investigating the operation in April 2017.

Members of the special unit reached out to the ads and connected with several women asking for help.

Crowell and Schiff ran the “corrupt organization involved in the human trafficking of young women for the commercial sex trade,” a statewide grand jury concluded. Authorities said both men recruited young women: Crowell posted advertisements and communicated with customers; and Schiff used drugs to lure women into prostitution.

Throughout the eight-day trial, a handful of women provided the court with victim impact statements.

Authorities said they supported the “brave women who detailed the unimaginable harm these defendants caused,” said Corporal Gregg Kravitshy of the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation. “Thanks to their courage, and with the support of our law enforcement partners, we were able to deliver justice for the victims of this sex trafficking operation.”

The men were convicted of the following charges:

  • Conspiracy, Corrupt Organizations (1 Count)
  • Trafficking in Individuals (6 Counts)
  • Involuntary Servitude (4 Counts)
