DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- A DeKalb County man faces more than 200 years in prison after being found guilty of human trafficking.

Darryl Curry will be sentenced Mar. 26. A DeKalb County jury found him guilty Monday of 13 felony counts, including trafficking, pimping and sexual exploitation of children.

"(Curry) is a monster who preyed upon young and impressionable girls for his own personal and financial gain," DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James said in a statement.

Police began investigating Curry in October 2011, when one of his victims called them. Investigators eventually found a second victim and uncovered evidence against Curry, including videos of him instructing others on how to become pimps and get rich by exploiting women.

"Curry described himself as a 'finesse pimp' -- one who cares for the women who work for him. But in actuality, he was extremely violent and physically abusive to our two victims," DeKalb County Assistant D.A. Dalia Racine said in a statement. "He mentally manipulated his victims and forced them to recruit other young women into the 'life.'"
