Man sentenced to 8 years for using drugs to pimp women

The Associated Press

BRENTWOOD — A New Hampshire judge has sentenced a man to 8 years in prison for human trafficking, after the man pleaded guilty to pimping three women by controlling their access to heroin.

Prosecutors say the crimes Frantzer Fleurimond pleaded guilty to took place in Portsmouth from June through October of 2014.

Rockingham County Attorney Patricia Conway said Fleurimond recruited the women to work for him and arranged sexual contacts through the Internet. Conway said the women were required to give him all the money they earned and he, in turn, supplied them with heroin. He would punish them by withholding heroin, she said, causing them to become dope sick.

Fleurimond pleaded guilty in December to three counts of human trafficking and one count of sale of a controlled drug.
