ND Prostitution & Drug Ring

Posted: Updated:

A New Town man faces up to life in prison for operating an organized gang that was involved in prostitution and drug activities.
A federal jury found 22 year old Dustin Morsette guilty of 16 counts involving sex trafficking, sex abuse, drug trafficking and witness tampering.
There were five victims of sex abuse -- four being girls under 16 years old.
Authorities say in September 2009, Morsette recruited minors and young adults to be part of a gang called the Black Disciples.
Morsette used physical force to cause a woman to engage in prostitution on the Fort Berthold Reservation, in Williston and in Minot.
He also used force and threatened gang members to distribute marijuana and have sex with him.
Morsette will be sentenced in federal court in Bismarck July 30th.
