Bed-Stuy man sentenced in pimping of runaway girl
A Brooklyn man was sentenced Tuesday to six to 18 years in prison for pimping out a 13-year-old runaway.
Kendale "Ace" Judge, of Bed-Stuy, met the girl last September and enticed her with promises to love and care for her and instead beat her with a belt, threw her down a flight of stairs and advertised her sexual availability on Backpage.com. Judge, 22, pleaded guilty to sex trafficking last month, according to Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes.
Judge was arrested last November with his accomplice, 21-year-old Shanique Davis, who allegedly took photos of the girl for the ads and helped keep her captive.
Davis, who will be sentenced Wednesday, is expected to plead guilty to promoting prostitution in the third degree and to receive five years probation.
At the time of their arrests, Hynes described the defendants as "the lowest of the low."
