LinkVACAVILLE — In March 2018, a woman known in court records only as Jane Doe left her Vacaville home and went to TJ’s Tavern. Once there, she struck up a conversation with another woman, and opened up to her about financial problems she was having and going through a recent breakup.
The woman, later identified as Sarah Keyosha Smith, 28, invited Doe back to her Rodeo home to spend the night watching movies and talking more. Doe agreed. But the next morning, Smith and her roommate told Doe they wouldn’t be taking her home, according to police testimony.
By spending the night and eating breakfast, Doe had racked up a debt, they allegedly explained. If Doe wanted to pay it off, she had to prostitute for them.
What followed, according to police, was a five-week ordeal where Doe, Smith, and her pimp, identified as Joseph Angelo Hernandez, 50, traveled the country, staying in hotels and making thousands through prostitution, and covering their expenses by maxing out Doe’s credit cards.
Doe would later tell detectives that Hernandez threatened to “go after” her family if she ran from him, and that Hernandez and Smith took all the money while the “debt” continued to rise. By the end, they allegedly told her she had to “work off” $5,000.
