A Hungarian man has been convicted in South Florida for his role in a running what investigators called a gay sex slave prostitution ring.

Andras Janos Vass faces a minimum of 21 years behind bars and a maximum of 155 years in prison after a Miami jury convicted him late Thursday of human trafficking and racketeering. Sentencing is set June 2 for the 25-year-old Vass.

The Miami Herald reports ( that testimony showed Vass and others brought three victims to New York in 2012 and forced them to perform sex acts at all hours. The victims and their families in Hungary were threatened and the victims' travel documents were confiscated.

The ring relocated to the Miami area later in 2012. Two other Hungarians are awaiting trial.
