Self-proclaimed ‘finesse pimp' sentenced in DeKalb County
DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS ATLANTA) -
A DeKalb County man will face sentencing after he was found guilty of human trafficking and sexual exploitation of children.
Darryl Curry will be sentenced on March 26, at 9 a.m.
Curry is facing more than 200 years behind bars.
Curry was convicted of 13 felony counts including trafficking of persons for sexual servitude, pimping for person under 18, sexual exploitation of children, false imprisonment, cruelty to children in the first degree and other charges.
On Oct. 8, 2011, one of two young female victims alerted authorities to Curry's criminal activity.
"Curry described himself as a ‘finesse pimp' - one who cares for the women who work for him. But in actuality, he was extremely violent and physically abusive to our two victims. He mentally manipulated his victims and forced them to recruit other young women into the lifestyle," said Assistant District Attorney Dalia Racine, who served as lead prosecutor for the case.
According to court documents, police found paraphernalia and videos of Curry instructing individuals on how to become a pimp and obtain wealth from exploiting women.
