Father and son who ran family business trafficking women for sex are jailed
Bogdan Nejloveanu, 51, and Marius Nejloveanu, 23, both Romanian nationals, tricked five vulnerable young women, none of them previously sex workers, to come to
from their home country with the promise of a new home and jobs. England
Marius, 23, used 'charm, good lucks and claims of affection' to entice the women, aged between 16 and 25, but once in the UK they were 'threatened, beaten and degraded', forced to sell their bodies for money and become his sexual play things, Manchester Crown Court heard.
The son repeatedly raped two of the women, one on an almost daily basis, while his father gave him practical help and advice so he could to set up his own prostitute business, warning the victims: 'Make no trouble or there will be trouble.'
There were also episodes where Marius forced the women into 'grossly humiliating' sexual acts for his own amusement, the court heard.
Marius was jailed for 21 years after being convicted earlier this month, following an eight-week trial, of 27 counts including four rapes, trafficking, assault and controlling prostitution.
His father was jailed for six years for seven charges including sex trafficking and controlling prostitution between November 2007 and October 2008.
The court heard each woman was paid £40, half going to the brothel and the rest to Marius, each time they were forced into sex with men. This happened between 10 and 20 times a day, seven days a week, in 'massage parlours' in
The business earned the Nejloveanu family thousands of pounds per week.
