TAT deputy director, Kylla Lanier, presented at the Omnitracs Sylectus conference in Nashville, TN last week meeting owners and safety directors for many trucking companies who previously had not heard our message. A lot of wonderful contacts were made that will lead to more eyes and ears on our nation’s highways being on alert for human trafficking.
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – A federal judge sentenced a Huntsville man who pleaded guilty to commercial sex trafficking to 15 years in prison Wednesday. Billy Randolph Edwards, 64, admitted paying a 15-year-old boy’s father so he could have sexual contact with the teen, federal prosecutors said. Edwards was arrested in September 2017. Prosecutors said he began paying the boy’s father in 2014 and stopped making payments after several months of encounters.
