  • In the beginning of 2007, the victim D.L. met the defendant A.G. She had just had a fight with another friend, and A.G. took D.L. into his care and offered her a place to stay. D.L. stayed there for a period of three months. After an initial amicable period, D.L. mentioned that she was looking for work. A.G. told her how lucrative prostitution was and D.L. agreed to work as a prostitute. A.G. drove D.L. to a bar where she worked as a waitress and “in the rooms.” At the end of the night, the bar manager took half of D.L.’s earnings and A.G. took the other half. This situation continued for two months. D.L. said that she gave A.G. all of her earnings; she was scared of him and he threatened her with a handgun, threatened to kill her and to harm her family. 

    After two months, A.G. took D.L. to a “box” where she worked from 14:00 in the afternoon to 6:00 in the morning. A.G. became more demanding and regularly came by to take D.L.’s earnings. D.L. generated 1,000 to 1,500 euros per day. During this time, A.G. was also violent; he beat D.L. and raped her several times. D.L.’s brother attempted to take D.L. home, but A.G. threatened D.L.’s brother with a handgun and the brother left.  One day, pretending she was going to work, D.L. made a phone call and her brother picked her up. She stayed in a shelter for battered women and brought charges against A.G.
