NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Acting U.S. Attorney Duane Evans announced the sentence for David Michael White, Jr., also known as "Prince Loyalty" on Thursday.
White pleaded guilty to use of an interstate facility to promote prostitution. A judge sentenced White to 33 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release. White also has to pay a $200 fine.
Documents say White operated a prostitution business based in New Orleans. Investigators say White used the website backpage.com to post "escort" ads and market women for prostitution. In August of 2015, White met a 19-year-old female victim from Shreveport online and arranged for her to visit him for a date. White picked the victim up from the bus station and told her he was a pimp. Investigators say White then enticed the victim to engage in sex acts for his personal financial benefit. They say he posted advertisements for her commercial sex services on backpage.com.
White also pled guilty to advertising a 19-year-old female victim from New Orleans on the same website in January of 2013. White received all of the proceeds from the commercial sex acts for both victims.
