The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced last month that Dawan “Finesse” Oliver, 36, currently an inmate at Dauphin County Prison, was sentenced to 21 months’ imprisonment and ordered to pay an assessment of $5,000 under the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act by Senior United States District Judge Yvette Kane for interstate travel in aid of prostitution.
According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Oliver was sentenced by Judge Kane in 2008 for his participation in a large conspiracy involving trafficking of minor girls and women from Toledo, Ohio, to the Harrisburg area to engage in prostitution. He was sentenced to serve nine years in federal prison at that time. Law enforcement authorities in Lower Paxton Township became aware of Oliver engaging in similar conduct in 2018, this time with adult women only. Upon receiving the information that Oliver had transported a young woman from Toledo to Harrisburg for prostitution, Oliver was arrested and charged federally. He entered a guilty plea to a one-count indictment charging interstate travel in aid of prostitution in June of 2019.
