A 29-year-old Queens man who allegedly trafficked two teenage girls for sex at a motel near JFK Airport last month has been charged with multiple sex-related crimes and faces up to 50 years in prison, District Attorney Melinda Katz announced Thursday.

Tyrone Miles, of 110th Avenue in Jamaica, allegedly held a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old girl captive at the JFK Inn, located at 154-10 South Conduit Ave., and forced them to have sex with strangers for money. He then pocketed the cash.

Miles rented a room at the motel between June 5 and June 12 with an unapprehended female accomplice and made the teens have sex with several men, according to the criminal complaint.

When one of the victim’s refused to have sex with the men, he threatened to kill her, according to the charges. He also told the younger teen to lie about her age, so that she would be legally old enough to consent to sex.

Miles also had sex with the 16-year-old girl himself, according to the District Attorney.

When the 16-year-old tried to flee the motel, Miles struck her in the face and body, leaving her badly bruised. The girl feared that if she didn’t comply with his demands, he would hurt her again but worse, according to DA’s office.

Miles threatened to harm the teens if they tried to leave or didn’t follow his demands, Katz said..

Miles was arraigned Thursday afternoon in Queens Criminal Court and was charged with two counts each of compelling prostitution, sex trafficking, sex trafficking of a child, promoting prostitution in the second degree and rape in the third degree.

He must return to court on August 8. If convicted, he faces 10 to 50 years in prison.

“The defendant is accused of having sex with one teenager and forcing both girls into having sex with strangers for cash – money that he pocketed for himself,” Katz said.

“The youngsters are now safe and away from the clutches of this alleged sex trafficker, who is accused of using brute force and threats to control and exploit the teenagers,” Katz added.

The J.F.K. Inn is merely the Jade East Motel renamed.
Regardless of name, it has always been a haven for prostitution.
And yet, the police never seem to do anything about it.
