A Takoma Park man will spend three years behind bars after pleading guilty to human trafficking in Anne Arundel County.

Freddy Soriano Leguisamon, 27, of Hannon Street, received a 10-year sentence Thursday with all but three years suspended, said Kristen Fleckenstein, spokeswoman for the Anne Arundel State’s Attorney’s Office.

Judge Paul A. Hackner also sentenced Leguisamon to three years of supervised probation after his release and banned him from the city of Annapolis, Fleckenstein said Monday.

He was charged in July 2012 with more than 70 prostitution and human trafficking related charges, court records show.

Annapolice Police discovered that Leguisamon, operated a prostitution ring, shuttling women from Riverdale in Prince George’s County to Annapolis, according to the charging documents.

Leguisamon, who according to charging documents went by the street name “Negro,” delivered the women to customers’ residences or to at least two brothels in and around Annapolis.

One of the women working for Leguisamon told investigators that she engaged in sexual activity with 26 men in four days.

Leguisamon made his prostitutes charge $30 for every 15 minutes with clients, according to the documents. Many of the women participated in the prostitution willingly, while others had been forced into it to pay off debts they or their family members owed for travel into the United States, the documents said.
