CASE ENTRY

United States v. Lacy

Kansas man absconds to Texas with underage girl to (in his words) “stack and lay low.” He’s caught, convicted of sex trafficking. Man: “Stack and lay low” is a rap lyric that alludes to “frugality, working every day, and living a full life with friends and family.” Tenth Circuit: The jury could have reasonably inferred otherwise. (Later in the song, the rapper says, “[T]hey don’t question what I say ’cause I’m a ladies[‘] pimp.”) Conviction affirmed.
