A Randolph man accused of sex trafficking in Hyannis and other off Cape areas has been indicted by a statewide Grand Jury. According to a release from Attorney General Maura Healey's Office, Marvin "Kise" Pompilus was indicted Monday on 18 counts of trafficking of persons for sexual servitude and 12 counts of deriving support from prostitution.
The AG's Office alleges that Pompilus recruited and oversaw several women arranging for them to provide commercial sexual services in hotels and other locations in Randolph, Boston, Braintree and Hyannis. The sex trafficking reportedly took place over a two-year period. During that time Pompilus allegedly directed the women to post online ads for sex in exchange for money. The AG's Office alleges that Pompilus would keep the money and provide the women with drugs.
"We allege that this defendant targeted and exploited women and arranged for them to provide sexual services in three different counties for his own profit," AG Healey said.
Healey's office began investigating Pompilus in May 2015 at the request of the Randolph Police Department. He was arrested by State Police assigned to the AG's Office on August 3.
Pompilus will be arraigned in Suffolk, Norfolk and Barnstable Counties at a later date, the release said.
"Our office is committed to prosecuting human traffickers who exploit and abuse others for their own gain," AG Healey said.
The investigation was conducted by the AG's dedicated Human Trafficking Division. Since its founding in 2012, more than 20 people including Pompilus have been charged with human trafficking.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorneys General Nancy Rothstein and Megan Williams. Several state and local agencies have worked on the investigation.
