An Albanian has been convicted of forcing a student to work in a Birmingham brothel after luring her to the UK.
Lorenc Goduni's conviction was the first successful conviction for human trafficking in the West Midlands.
Goduni (29) of Ashburton Road, Kings Heath, was found guilty by a jury at Birmingham Crown Court of a charge of trafficking within the UK for sexual exploitation.
He and Lithuanian prostitute Simona Kazakaite (22), of the same address, were also convicted of conspiracy to cause prostitution for gain and conspiracy to control prostitution.
Judge Phillip Gregory said Goduni and Kazakaite had acted "unspeakably" towards their victim.
He went on: "These offences are so grave that you both face very substantial custodial sentences not only to punish you but as a deterrent to others who wish to involve themselves in such vile transactions."
He adjourned sentencing on both defendants for reports to be prepared on them and said he would recommend Goduni for deportation. They were both remanded in custody.
After the hearing, Detective Sergeant Silvanus Ward, the officer in charge of the investigation, said: "It is the first successful prosecution involving human trafficking in the West Midlands, as a result of the CPS and police working together.
"It was a difficult and demanding investigation and the victim in this case was subjected to a harrowing ordeal which was brought to an end by police intervention."
Robert Brown, prosecuting, said the victim, who lived in a small village in Lithuania, was a naive 18-year-old who was persuaded to come to the UK by a woman she spoke to in internet chat rooms.
He said the student, who could not speak English, flew to Heathrow on her own after being told she could get a lucrative summer job.
She met Goduni at Heathrow and he drove her to Birmingham where she was made to work with Kazakaite and other prostitutes at the Garden of Eden in Hay Mills.
Mr Brown said the victim did what she did out of fear and her ordeal was only brought to an end following a complaint made by another woman. ..SUPL:
