New York Man Sentenced for Elaborate Lie Told to FBI About Sex Trafficking

Calling it one of the most bizarre cases he’s ever handled, U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci Jr. sentenced the New York man to a year in jail for lying to the FBI.

The Elmira Star-Gazette reports that Brandon Todd lied and claimed he was a trafficker who had compelled women to join the sex trade.

Since the 20-year-old served most of his year awaiting sentencing, he soon will return to his home in Prattsburgh, which he shares with his grandparents.

The case started when a woman falsely accused Todd of forcing her into the sex slave, a lie that Todd decided to perpetuated.

“This is one of the more bizarre cases that I’ve ever really presided over, and I’ve presided over a lot of cases,” Geraci told Todd.

“You created a lot of havoc, not only for law enforcement but also for the victim in this case,” Geraci said. “… This did unleash a widespread investigation.”
