Sex trafficker who ran brothel in West Philly sentenced to 100 years in prison

A Philadelphia man who officials say ran a strip club and brothel in West Philadelphia was sentenced to 100 years in federal prison Wednesday.

Kevino Graham, 36, is said to have taken part in subjecting young women to prostitution and “repeated acts of sadistic sexual torture” while running Club Passions and Passionate Touch in the Cathedral Park section of the city. Graham worked with three co-defendants, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office on Thursday.

Graham is also said to have participated in acts of force, threats, fraud and coercion, according to the office.

Along with the century of prison time, Judge C. Darnell Jones II also ordered Graham to pay nearly $642,000 in restitution along with other fees.

Brian Wright and Renato Teixeira were previously sentenced to 262 and 102 months in prison, respectively. Raffael Robinson is awaiting sentencing.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says the four ran Passionate Touch from 2009 until 2013, and that Graham and Wright collected money while Teixeira helped to “recruit” women. The three were charged in 2014.
