Long Beach — On Dec. 4, William Earl Flavors, of Long Beach, plead guilty to sex trafficking in a federal court.

Flavors, 40, had prior conviction for forcing women into prostitution. In 2000, he was convicted of taking two teenage girls from Seattle — where he formerly lived — and forcing them to work as prostitutes in OrangeCounty. For that, he received a 14-year prison sentence, which he completed and was released with supervision in late 2011.

In October 2012, the Long Beach Police Department arrested him for attacking a woman.

He admits to forcing two women to go from Long Beach to Las Vegas to work as prostitutes. A U.S. Attorney’s Office press released stated that Flavors also admitted that he physically abused, threatened and forced one of the women to work for him as a prostitute for eight months in 2012.

He is serving four-years for violating the terms of his release after. His hearing is scheduled for May 9.

Flavors, also known as “Andre,” is expected to be sent to prison for another decade.
