MURFREESBORO, Tenn.  – Vytal Dominique Cote, 27, was arrested in Florida on May 11. Cote was indicted by a Rutherford County Grand Jury on charges of trafficking for a commercial sex act, promoting prostitution, and money laundering.
A Florida woman, who moved to Spring Hill, Tennessee, was charged with prostitution in November 2021. During the investigation, detectives dismissed charges against the woman once they discovered she was a victim of sex trafficking. She told investigators Cote followed her to Tennessee and forced her to do massages and then perform sex acts on clients. She said Cote even threatened to have her deported if she didn’t comply.
The Rutherford County District Attorney’s office issued an extradition letter for Cote, where he will eventually be returned to Rutherford County to answer the charges.
FDLE located at least four more possible sex trafficking victims in the South Florida area as part of this investigation.
