One new article link has been added to our Related News page. The Dothan Eagle published an article titled Prosecution: Suspect brought teen girl to Dothan for prostitution services.

“There is overwhelming evidence in this case that this man brought a 17-year-old to Dothan, Alabama, to be a prostitute,” Smith said. “His business is selling young women on backpage.com. He is a pimp.”

Dothan police arrested Alonso in August 2013 and charged him with human trafficking, distribution of drugs to a minor and felony first-degree possession of marijuana.

Jurors were expected to begin their deliberations Thursday morning in front of Circuit Court Judge Butch Binford.

According to Alabama law, a person commits the crime of human trafficking if he or she “knowingly recruits, entices, solicits, induces, harbors, transports, holds, restrains, provides, maintains, subjects, or obtains by any means another person for the purpose of labor servitude or sexual servitude.”
