NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Opening arguments for have begun for a father and son accused of sex trafficking.

Prosecutor Kim Han told the court that the five young women from Pennsylvania were forced into prostitution by Vincent George, Sr. and Vincent George, Jr. and that they were turned into domestic sex workhorses.

The father and son’s defense is that they are pimps, but not sex traffickers.

As WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported, defense attorney Howard Greenberg argued that, of course, his clients were recruiting prostitutes and could not see what the big deal was.

Greenberg went on to say, ” these women, simply put, worked as hoes because they wanted to.”

Then he pointed to Exhibit A for the defense, a tall blonde dressed in a skin-tight sporty outfit and high-heeled sandals known as Desiree Alice.

She smiled and waved her turquoise finger nails.

Greenberg argued that she’d say that she’s no victim.

Prosecutors have a photo of Alice with a black eye.
