Florida Man Aka “Slime” Sentenced To 30 Years In Prison For Sex Trafficking Minor Girls

A 26-year-old Florida man was Friday to 30 years in prison and five years of supervised release for conspiring to traffic minor girls for commercial sex.

A 26-year-old Florida man was Friday to 30 years in prison and five years of supervised release for conspiring to traffic minor girls for commercial sex.

On August 11, 2022, following a four-day trial, a federal jury found Kerby Brown Jr., aka “Slime,” guilty of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of a minor, attempted sex trafficking of a minor, and sex trafficking of a minor.

Brown conspired to traffic at least five minor girls for commercial sex between November 2018 and May 2019. Starting in November 2018, he worked to recruit three minor girls for commercial sex work at a hotel party.

Brown successfully posted a commercial sex advertisement online for at least one of those minors, one of who was 14 years old. At the time this girl was a runaway.

Between January and February 2019, Brown trafficked a 15-year-old girl for commercial sex. Like the 14-year-old victim, she was a runaway when Brown recruited her. He lured the 15-year-old under the guise of offering her a free place to stay.

Court records show Brown later caused her to sell herself for commercial sex in order to contribute to costs.

He drove the 15-year-old girl from Fort Lauderdale to Orlando, Fla., where she engaged in commercial sex acts with strangers at his discretion. He then drove the 15-year-old back to Fort Lauderdale where she continued to engage in commercial sex acts. 

The 15-year-old girl testified at trial that she forfeited the majority of proceeds from these commercial sex acts directly to Brown, who coordinated each encounter by using explicit photos of the girl to advertise to interested parties.

During the trial there was a voice recording where Brown had discussed the 15-year-old with an 18-year-old female co-conspirator.

Brown was arrested in May 2019 during a sex trafficking operation after he delivered his female co-conspirator for a commercial sex act with an undercover officer. In the car that Brown was driving, law enforcement found a 17-year-old girl. 

The only possessions the minor had with her were a cellular telephone and a purse containing condoms.

This case was investigated by FBI’s Crimes Against Children Human Trafficking Task Force, in partnership with the Hollywood Police Department, and the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.
