Violent Dallas pimp, Allen Nash, gets life in prison for sex trafficking

A Dallas-area pimp who preyed on teenage girls was sentenced Friday to life in federal prison.

This sentenced was announced by U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox, Northern District of Texas.  This investigation was conducted by the following agencies:  U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI); the Texas Department of Public Safety; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF); the Shreveport (Louisiana) Police Department; and the FBI.


Allen Nash, 31, was convicted in April of the following charges:  sex trafficking children; conspiracy to commit sex trafficking; sex trafficking through force, fraud or coercion; transporting a minor to engage in commercial sex acts; and illegally possessing ammunition after he forced two victims, aged 17 and 19, into the illicit sex trade in the fall of 2014.

During his four-day trial, victims told jurors that Nash lured them into engaging in commercial sex acts by promising a better life. Instead, he joined forces with the owner of the “Doll House” massage parlor, demanding the girls work day and night. He confiscated their proceeds and used violence and threats to keep them from leaving.

When one victim dozed off in a motel room, Nash dragged her out of bed and slammed her head into a toilet, cracking the seat with her skull — a warning to other victims about what could happen to them if they failed to earn enough money.

Nash recruited the 17-year-old via Facebook with promises of gifts and trips, evidence showed. One day, he showed up at her mother’s apartment in a Mercedes to drive her to a liaison.

“I was a vulnerable little girl in need of guidance. I was desperate for help. Allen Nash knew that,” the young woman, now 22, said in an impact statement read aloud in court today. “I think it’s safe to say the devil lives in him.”
