January 27, 2014 – Gregory Krajnyk, 46, of Garfield Heights in Ohio, has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for running an escort agency (i.e. prostitution and human trafficking ring) from 2008 through 2012. The count is 13 felonies and 2 misdemeanors.
- four counts of Human Trafficking
- three counts of Promoting Prostitution
- two counts of rape
- two counts of Compelling Prostitution
- one count of Endangering Children
- one count of Having Weapons Under Disability
- two misdemeanor assault counts
The felonies to which Krajnyk admitted guilt involved 12 different victims, including 11 young women. Investigation by the Garfield Heights Police Department and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation established that Krajnyk used drugs, alcohol and physical intimidation to manipulate the vulnerable women under his control.
This is the same escort/prostitution/human sex trafficking/drug abuse ring that former Cuyahoga County assistant prosecutor William Kaczmarek was an avid client and supporter. In June 2013, William Kaczmarek got fired from his job after his involvement with Krajnyk’s criminal ring was discovered.
While 13 years in prison may seem a little light, and in other areas of America he would get over 20 years in prison easily, Ohio is continuing to crack down on pimps and human traffickers, and penalties only get tougher as time passes. Several years ago, Krajnyk would likely get less than 10 years in prison, and prosecution would take far longer. Now double digit years in prison is the standard for losers like Krajnyk.

Cuyahoga County: Ohio man who operated human trafficking ring sent to prison
On June 11, 2013, William F. Kaczmarek was fired from his job as a Cuyahoga County (Ohio) assistant prosecutor after it was determined he had been consorting with a criminal defendant accused of operating an escort service, which was involved with prostitution and illegal drugs.
The pimp of the escort service is Gregory Krajnyk and Bill Kaczmarek’s work computer contained photos of Kaczmarek with a nude escort. Kaczmarek, 59, was hired as an assistant prosecutor in 2006.
Eight months later, Kaczmarek’s limited Linkedin profile shows he still has not found a job, and it looks very unlikely he ever will. The sorry path these losers take, and what will happen to you as well.
Former Cuyahoga County assistant prosecutor says in document he was fired for consorting with a criminal defendant
Back in July 2013, a major escort/prostitution agency and their pimps, Vincent Lombardo and Melissa (Hodge) Lombardo, were arrested and shut down. On August 12, 2013, a grand jury already found the couple guilty of numerous felonies and punishment was handed out. I am currently unable to find out the prison terms for their pimping, but with their home and money and property seized, and major criminal records, they won’t have anywhere to go when they leave prison.
So if you are thinking about pimping like the Lombardo’s to gain some fast and dirty cash, remember that you will inevitably lose everything.
So far public records show they are indicted for:
1 count – Money Laundering Conspiracy
27 counts – Money Laundering
1 count – Felon in Possession of a Firearm
Summary of what they lose (there’s more to come for pimping and prostitution which is not listed here)
The Lombardo’s must forfeit everything they bought with illegally earned money, including cash. This includes their primary home in Boca Raton (Florida), cars, computers, cell phones, furniture, clothes, and anything no matter how big or small.
Vincent Lombardo must forfeit his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, accessories, and ammunition.
