Becoming A Witness

In 2008, Kelsey Emily Collins agreed to testify against her pimp. His name is Donnico Tyrel Johnson. And the man was charged with interstate sex trafficking of a minor, as was a woman, Lisa Miles.

Collins continued to work as a prostitute, however. And she was arrested again in April 2009, just days before she was summoned to testify against her pimp before a federal grand jury. She disappeared a few weeks later.

Because Collins was unavailable to testify, the case against Johnson and Miles was dismissed for lack of evidence in March 2010. Three months later, Johnson pleaded guilty to trafficking of a minor in another case involving a fourteen-year-old, and was sentenced to fifteen years in prison. Miles was also charged in that case; she took a plea deal and was sentenced to probation.
