    Chicago man forced young women into prostitution, prosecutors say


    In September 2023, the Illinois State Police received a tip that 47-year-old Heggie Carr was sex trafficking an 18-year-old woman. An investigation revealed that Carr would allegedly use online ads to offer sexual encounters with women at the Sonesta Suites ES in Lombard, as well as other locations.

    On Nov. 29, prosecutors say undercover officers booked sexual services with two women at the Sonesta Suites ES through an online ad posted by Carr, and that Carr was present at the time of the arranged services.

    Further investigating revealed that Carr directed the victims to have sex for money and then to give him all the proceeds, according to prosecutors. Carr allegedly forced the women into prostitution every day, threatened their lives and the lives of their families, and beat at least one of them on a daily basis.

    Carr was denied pre-trial release and is next scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 11. If he’s found guilty, he faces up to 30 years in prison.
