quote
Patrick M, age 50 was arrested in Huntsville,AL on March 7,2014 for child sex trafficking by the department of homeland security. An agent read a posting in Craigslist posted by Mr Minga last November offering sex with Ecuadorian and Colombian children. The agent followed up his investigation with several phone calls confirming Mr Minga's illegal activities. Minga has been transported to his home state of Florida for prosecution. If convicted, he will be sentenced to up to 30 years. In addition, his has extorted money from clients by withholding their passports and demanding additional monies, advertising and confirming one price for hotel stays but charging a higher amount after the client arrives in the middle of the night tired and with nowhere else to sleep. He has physically threatened several of his hotel guest. Many of the reviews posted here are from his friends and other paid users. Stayed November 2013
