MEMPHIS, Tenn— The person who is supposedly responsible has been arrested by the police. Memphis survives forced into sex slavery. This is unfortunately very common in Memphis, according to sources.
A young woman of 19 told Memphis Police last Wednesday she was hanging with a man she thought a friend, the 30-year-old Brian Curtis, to the Red Roof Motel on Elvis Presley Boulevard. The victim spent some days with Curtis and another girl, and it took the worst turn. Curtis ceased allowing her to leave the chamber last Monday, according to a police affidavit. Her cell phone was lost and forced to have sex for cash with people.
"Gender is a very common smuggling. Memphis is a very common occurrence for sex trafficking, "said Colby Jonas, campus coordinator of Youth Villages. Within one day, the complainant reported that Curtis had intercourse with several people and received all the money. He informs her that she has been using her phone to call for help, but Curtis has caught her. He punished her as she struck her with the belt with a big metal loop, kicking her face and striking her.
She had to be rushed to Regional One so badly beaten that she alerted the police. Colby Jonas is the head of the Youth Villages campus, a non-profit organization that supports children and teens with behavioral problems. On allegations of kidnapping, kidnap and abuse, Brian Curtis was charged. With aggravated stalking, violent assaults and allegations of bullying Curtis have twice been convicted. Both charges have been dropped, though.
Laird Veatch is talking from his new office about the painful process of passing through, realizing that he wanted something, and then not getting it.
He's talking about the Kansas State Athletic Director's job he's been trying to get two years before he officially became the University of Memphis Athletic Director this week, a job at his alma mater in his hometown that eventually went to someone else.
He's talking about how he was forced to question why he was doing what he was doing, what he was actually trying to do, and how he was going to do it.
He's talking about how he was convinced he needed to be an athletic director, that he wouldn't be satisfied until he became one, even if that meant leaving the place he knew best (Manhattan, Kansas) to go to a place he hardly knew (Gainesville, Florida).
He's talking about it because "I'm certain it led to this," Veatch said Tuesday afternoon in an interview with The Commercial Appeal.
It's too soon to tell the exact feeling that Veatch is going to make on Memphis athletics.
But the path he's taken to get here, a journey that seemed largely unimpeded until the moment it wasn't, indicates that he can relate to what this university has gone through in the last round of meeting realignment, and what it ultimately intends to become.

Volunteer groups, meals for security guards: How housing societies in Pune are dealing with lockdown
Indeed, even as the city has gone under a lockdown and dubious occasions lie ahead, lodging social orders are concocting special approaches to unravel regular issues. From volunteer gatherings for getting staple goods and disinfecting basic spots to preparing nourishment for assistants by turn, a feeling of brotherhood is seeing individuals through the emergency.
Konark Indrayu Enclave Phase I, a lodging society with 154 involved lofts on NIBM street, has thought of a framework wherein just a bunch of occupants go to the close by basic food item and clinical store to get the essential things since home conveyance has halted. This progression is particularly for the old who can't step outside.
"We have a couple of old residents who live here and since they can't go out, a few of us purchase things like milk, bread and food supplies for them. Thusly, just a set number of individuals go out and correspondence is done by means of the general public WhatsApp gathering," said Soumitra Sen, secretary of the lodging society. He said that since security monitors are on the job, their dinners are being set up by individuals from the general public.
