A man stupid enough to emblazon “Ho Hauler” on his pimp van pleaded guilty to the sex trafficking of children in federal court Wednesday.
Fox 6 in Milwaukee reports 37-year-old Sean Patrick recruited and transported girls under the age of 18 for acts of prostitution.
He transported the teens in a gold 1992 Chevrolet conversion van with the offensive words inscribed on the front quarter panel, according to court documents.
Prosecutors say Patrick punished his victims by choking them, stomping them or making them stand naked in the street next to the van.
Patrick, who was previously convicted of shooting and killing a man over a dispute about prostitutes, could spend the rest of his life in prison. As part of a plea agreement he agreed to give up $10,000 in profits and the van.
