The Dominican singer is wanted in North Carolina, where there are kidnapping and forcing a minor into prostitution.

The singer was arrested in the Dominican Republic, in connection with suspicions of his participation in a prostitution ring which prostituted young hispanic girls in North Carolina.

Allegedly, one of these young women managed to escape, and told the Dominican press about the abuse.

The girl said Jose Altagracia de León Corcino, or Frankie the Boss, was a part of the criminal band who tricked her into a place where they locked her, and forced her to sell 15 minutes of intercourse for $25 on a regular basis.

Corcino has been arrested, his property confiscated, and awaits for trial and possibly extradition.
