Mass and Cass pimp tried to run over woman he was trafficking and when that didn't work, got out and punched her repeatedly in the face, DA charges
An alleged Mass and Cass pimp was arraigned yesterday on human-trafficking charges and for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for an incident in March in which he allegedly beat the woman he had been forcing to work for him for three years, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
A Roxbury Municipal Court judge set bail at $50,000 for Albert Boynton, 55, on charges of trafficking a person for sexual servitude, deriving support from prostitution and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, the DA's office reports. Judge David Breen, however, agreed with prosecutors to revoke Boynton's bail for an earlier case.
According to the DA's office, Boynton forced the woman to go on "dates" in which she was paid for sex - with the money going straight to Boynton.
At approximately 4 a.m. on an unspecified day this past March, Boynton, believing the victim owed him money, tried to run her over in a black SUV with a New Hampshire plate while she was standing on the sidewalk near Rusfield Street in Boston. He exited his vehicle and punched her in the face several times.
Boynton faces a probable-cause hearing on June 13.
