BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Two men from the Baltimore area are accused of being part of a Maryland-based human trafficking enterprise, according to an announcement by the Maryland Attorney General and the Prince George's County State's Attorney.

Rashid Marwan Mosby, 43, of Windsor Mill, and Terra Marie Perry, 37, of Baltimore, both pleaded guilty to human trafficking offenses before a Prince George's County judge, according to a news release. They are set to be sentenced Nov. 8.

A third co-defendant, Joshua Isaiah Jones, 27, of Greenbelt, was convicted of human trafficking of a minor and getting earnings from prostitution.

The three worked together between 2013 and 2015 under the guise of a modeling and escort agency under the name "Pink Pleasure Entertainment," which they used to recruit females throughout Maryland and nearby states on backpage.com, according to the news release.

They posted more than 100 ads with sexually explicit images and language to solicit customers for sexual services arranged by the co-defendants, according to the release.

After being trafficked into Maryland, the victims were manipulated and threatened into prostitution.

The victims included a juvenile lured from North Carolina.

The co-defendants rented dozens of hotel rooms throughout Maryland for sexual purposes, and the victims were trafficked around the hotels.

"These individuals brutalized young women for profit," said Attorney General Brian Frosh. "Trafficking of women for prostitution is a problem worldwide and in our own back yards. Working with law enforcement in multiple agencies, we were able to lock these individuals up and prevent them from preying on more young women."
