Postby admin » 29 Mar 2017, 22:54

A man who ran a string of brothels, trafficked women and controlled their profiles on adult websites has been convicted of a series of offences. David Archer, 53 (11.06.63) of Northumberland Avenue, Wanstead is awaiting sentencing at Snaresbrook Crown Court after pleading guilty to the following offences:

One count of conspiracy to control prostitution for gain;
Two counts of human trafficking, contrary to section 2 Modern Slavery Act 2015;
Possession of an Identity Document with improper intention;
One count of concealing criminal property.

On Monday, 27 March, Archer was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault following a four-week trial.

Archer's accomplices Emma Cox, 41 (23.11.75), of New Timber Avenue, Worthing and Zobia Taqi, 29 (29.12.87) of High Road, Ilford, both admitted to conspiracy to control prostitution for gain on Friday, 10 February.

All three will be sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court the same court on a date to be confirmed.

Detective Sergeant John Kirby, of the Met's Sexual Offences Exploitation and Child Abuse Command, said: "Archer exploited vulnerable women to build his lucrative empire in the sex industry over a number of years. The vulnerability of the women and his position of strength created an imbalance which he exploited again and again - financially, emotionally, and in some cases sexually.

A brothel owner trafficked prostitutes into Britain to help him make a £16milion fortune, a court heard today.
David Archer, 53, used women at low points in their lives and without money to staff a chain of five brothels with an annual turnover of at least £1.6million between 2013 and 2016.

When he was arrested, he had assets worth millions - including four London properties, three in Dublin, and two cars.

He pocketed up to 50 per cent of the prostitutes' earnings, and regularly visited the brothels to collect the money.

He even monitored one brothel, a property in Fulham, from his East London home using CCTV.

One prostitute saw up to 15 men a day, the sentencing hearing at Snaresbrook Crown Court heard.

His trusted accomplices Emma Cox, 41, and Zobia Taqi, 29, helped run the empire which stretched from a two-bed flat in Fulham, west London to Forest Gate in east London.

A property tycoon who used an adult website to run a £16million prostitution empire from his 'semi-legitimate' hotels and a 20-room brothel was jailed for 13 years today. David Archer, 53, of Essex, recruited 'vulnerable' women to work as prostitutes while cruising around shopping areas, before creating profiles for them on adultwork.com.

He kept the sex workers at his properties, including two hotels and a residential house which was converted into a brothel to cater for large numbers of punters.

Described in court as a 'psycho' by one prostitute, Archer imposed strict rules on the women, forcing them to wear underwear at all times and monitoring them with CCTV cameras 24 hours a day. He recruited one woman after finding her crying at a bus stop and offered her a place to stay in 2015.

Archer also forced one of his victims to pose for explicit photographs before groping her. 'She was scared and she was desperate,' said Judge Sheelagh Canavan. 'She was so desperate to get away she saw just one client to get enough money to leave.'

He was finally arrested in January 2016 after one of his victims called police after being locked inside a bedroom at Archer's home in Hornchurch, Essex.
