Man Sentenced To Life In Prison For Sex Trafficking

Man Sentenced To Life In Prison For Sex Trafficking

A Sioux Falls man accused of running a sex trafficking "house of horrors" received a maximum sentence in court Monday.

45-year-old Mohammed Alaboudi will spend the rest of his life in prison. In court Monday, a judge sentenced him to life on all four counts of human sex trafficking. He'll serve each sentence concurrently.

Four victims addressed the court. They called Alaboudi a "monster" and described their situation as "hell." The judge also said this was the worst case like this she has seen.

Alaboudi forced girls to work as prostitutes out of a one-bedroom apartment just blocks from downtown Sioux Falls. He was found guilty back in December of 2013.
