Pimp who forced women into prostitution on the Gold Coast convicted

A FORMER music producer who began pimping on the Gold Coast has been convicted of sex trafficking.

Damion St Patrick Baston faced a two week trial in the US, before being found guilty of 21 charges, including money laundering.

Two Australian women and one New Zealander testified alongside three Americans who were turned into sex slaves by Baston.


Baston beat, threatened and raped his victims, and bragged about being a member of violent LA street gang the Bloods.

The 37-year-old will be sentenced in September.
