A Virginia man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison and ordered to pay nearly $650,000 for sex trafficking two teenage victims for two years.

In addition to the 41-year-old Michael Gunn, a previously convicted sex offender, his wife, 35-year-old Angel Gunn, and girlfriend, 31-year-old Vanessa Dominguez, were also sentenced for helping Gunn run the prostitute ring. Angel Gunn was sentenced to 140 months and Dominguez was sentenced to 120 months. Both women were prostitutes.

According to court documents, Michael Gunn lured and enticed two teenage girls to his home and advertised them online as prostitutes. He also drove them to clients and kept most of the money. Authorities say that at one point, when one of the girls was 14, Michael Gunn even saw her missing person's poster and continued to prostitute her.

Officials said Michael Gunn pimped the girls from July 2013 to July 2015 and will be ordered to pay $648,000 back to match the money the girls brought in while he was using them as prostitutes.

Dwayne Thompson lived next door to Michael Gunn and his wife but had no idea his neighbor was a pimp.

“It was a very big shock. You try to get to know your neighbors,” Thompson said.

Thompson said Michael Gunn helped him around the house and even attended neighborhood Bible study. Michael Gunn had even been kind of honest about his past.

“I had heard from him he had done some dumb things in the past, bad things in the past but I never knew what they were,” Thompson said.

Anthony Meyer lived on the other side of the Gunn residence and said he knew Michael Gunn had previously been in jail but said he was kind enough to cut his lawn.

“I've been here 8 years and I never would have imagined,” Meyer said.

The couple sold their home on Wilmer Porter Court last May.

Neighbors say despite cops being called for domestic disputes, they had no idea anything illegal was taking place. They wish they could have done more.

“I'm glad those girls are safe somewhere,” Meyer said.
