A staff member at a Las Vegas school, Rayshod Arberry, has been taken into custody and is facing charges related to sex trafficking. Arberry, 33, had been employed by the Clark County School District for six years before his arrest. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department received information from a woman on August 1, claiming that she had been involved in prostitution under Arberry’s control. She revealed that she had initially met him while she was homeless and that he had instructed her to go on dates with clients, collecting money from these encounters for his own benefit.
It is important to note that the woman who came forward had previously been reported missing in July but had managed to escape from Arberry’s exploitative arrangement prior to approaching the police. Following thorough investigation, authorities were able to locate and apprehend Arberry at his residence. Although he denied any involvement in pimping activities, his choice of language during the investigation was consistent with terminology commonly used in the world of sex trafficking. Additionally, messages retrieved from Arberry’s phone, which were exchanged with women, contradicted his claim of innocence.
Despite his arrest, Arberry has been released on a $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on November 14, 2023. This alarming case involving Arberry underscores the grave issue of sex trafficking and exploitation, shedding light on the vulnerability of individuals who can become trapped in such horrific situations.
