South Carolina sex trafficker gets 40-year prison sentence

Damon Jackson (Charleston County Detention Center)

A South Carolina man is going to prison over his part in a large sex trafficking ring, prosecutors say.

Damon Jackson, AKA “Daddy Frost,” was sentenced Thursday by a federal judge in Charleston to 40 years in prison.

Jackson was convicted in March 2017 of conspiracy to force underage girls and young women into sex trafficking throughout the southeast, according to U.S. Attorney Sherri Lydon.

Between 2014 and 2016, prosecutors say Jackson and several other defendants preyed on more than 100 vulnerable female victims. Many victims were minors, prosecutors say.

The group of criminals would force the women and girls to have sex with customers numerous times a night, using beatings, brandings, drugs, threats. and other types of psychological manipulation to control them.

North Charleston Police and the Dept. of Homeland Security investigated the case.

Two other South Carolina men, Bakari McMillan and Corey Miller, have been sentenced to 40 and 20 years in prison, respectively, for their part in the sex trafficking operation.

As part of their sentences, all the defendants were given lifetime supervision, mandatory registration as a sex offender, and must participate in a computer/internet monitoring program.

Seven other defendants have pleaded guilty to sex trafficking conspiracy in connection to the case, and are awaiting sentencing.
