LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - David Givhan, 35, of Michigan, will spend nearly 20 years in federal prison for running a sex trafficking ring between Michigan and Kentucky. Part of the ring took place during the Kentucky Derby.
Officials said Givhan forced one of the women involved to get his street name tattooed on her neck. He also threatened to kill her and her children.
"Word gets around about Kentucky Derby," Kasey Fitch, a human trafficking survivor, said. "You know that's where all the money is. Tons of people come from out of town and they bring girls from out of town."
Fitch has been out of human trafficking for four months and is recovering at the Kristy Love Foundation.
Fitch said Derby is called "money maker" weekend, and dozens of women there need help, but can't ask.
