A Bronx man who was convicted of child sex trafficking last year was sentenced Wednesday to 50 years in state prison, according to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
Arthur Dawson, 31, was convicted by a jury in July 2022 for an array of violent sex crimes, along with Daniel Washington, 35.
Dawson learned his fate today, while Washington, also from the Bronx, was sentenced to 25 years in prison in November.
The pair were convicted of sex trafficking of a child, promoting prostitution, and conspiracy, among other charges. Dawson was also convicted of rape.
““Arthur Dawson ranks among the most violent traffickers this Office has ever prosecuted,” said District Attorney Alvin Bragg in a statement. “Along with Daniel Washington, Dawson operated a horrific enterprise recruiting girls and young women to work in prostitution for their personal gain.”
