Milwaukee man convicted of sex trafficking, child abuse, sexual assault

A Milwaukee pimp has been found guilty on 14 criminal charges, including sex trafficking, sexual assault, child abuse, and witness intimidation.

45-year-old Roy Weatherall, Jr. was found guilty of running a sex trafficking operation that capitalized on child prostitution and was convicted on all 14 charges he was facing. One of the state’s witnesses said she gave Weatherall whatever she made from prostitution and strip club dancing, and recruited others for his operation.

Weatherall’s lawyer argued that it was the witness’s decision to work in that manner and that providing money to Weatherall was the girl’s decision and that she did her job out of her own free will.
