A District Heights man convicted in January in connection with a prostitution ring run out of a Rockville Hilton Hotel will spend more than 10 years behind bars, a Montgomery County judge ruled Wednesday.
Rubin also sentenced Kornegay to five years of supervised probation. Kornegay pimped for two women, renting rooms at the Hilton and posting for their services, Mays said. Kornegay gave the women drugs so they could work all night and threatened to hit them if they did not turn over their earnings, Mays said.
One of the women claimed not to know what state she was in when police rescued her, Mays said. Kornegay was planning to expand the business to involve six women, Mays said. Police used the pseudonym to track the woman down on Back.
While on bond before his trial, Kornegay was flaunting his wealth and his life as a pimp, Mays said. In court, Mays showed Facebook photos that Kornegay had posted of piles of cash when he was supposedly indigent. Other photos showed the defendant posing with cheerleaders in a skybox at a Redskins football game or shooting handguns with his children.
He was also making calls to the very women he was accused of trafficking, helping them keep making money and posting to Back. We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program deed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.
