St Louis Man, La’ron Clower Sentenced on Racketeering and Prostitution Charges

La’ron Clower, 29, of St. Louis, was sentenced to 48 months in prison for his involvement in racketeering and prostitution charges.  He appeared in federal court today before U.S. District Court Judge Ronnie White.

According to court documents, between July 2016 and November 2016, Clower recruited 15-year-old DK and 22-year-old BC for purposes of prostitution.  Clower prostituted them via advertisements placed on Backpage.com.  This activity included renting hotel rooms and communicating with victims and clients via the Internet and cellular phones.  Clower would transport DK and BC from St. Louis County, Missouri to a truck stop in Illinois so that DK and BC could engage in commercial sex acts.

Clower pled guilty in January 2019 to one count of Interstate Travel or Transportation with Intent to Promote Prostitution.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the St. Louis County Police Department, the St. Charles County Police Department, the Bridgeton Police department and the Kirkwood Police Department.  Assistant United States Attorney Howard Marcus prosecuted the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
