'Sugar Bear' Pimp, Renowned For Abusing Prostitutes, Enters A Guilty Plea Following A Stunning Discovery In A Freezer: Know More Here

Prosecutors claim that on January 13, 2017, Moses beat 32-year-old Leondra Foster to death in their shared flat before dismembering her body with a saw and a knife. He dumped her body parts at a trash facility in the Bronx, New York, four days later.

Police then discovered Foster’s severed hands, feet, and foot that had the word “Somorie” tattooed on it in a deep freezer inside Moses’ Brooklyn home.

Moses, 47, confessed on September 15. He was acquitted of murder charges in a Brooklyn state court in 2019 after having previously been found guilty of concealing a corpse and criminally negligent homicide.

He would have been available for release in May 2022 had the federal government not rearrested him on the allegation of murder during sex trafficking, the first time new federal legislation has been used, according to the USAO.

Moses previously admitted to dismembering Foster’s body but insisted he did not kill her. On the witness stand, he did admit that for 20 years, he had made money as a “pimp,” had “smacked [Foster] around,” and had given her “many… black eyes.”

According to court documents, during Moses’ state trial, federal agents discovered two people willing to testify that the pimp confessed Foster’s murder to them.

“With [Friday’s] guilty plea to every count in the indictment, Moses is held fully responsible for preying on women and girls, forcing them to become prostitutes, and then brutally murdering and dismembering one of his many victims,” U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Breon Peace wrote in the press release.

“While the defendant’s total admission of guilt cannot undo the terrible harm he has caused, we hope it will bring a measure of closure to his victims who suffered the defendant’s extreme cruelty and brutality, and to the family of Ms. Foster.”

Moses, also known as “Somorie Barfield,” “Sugar Bear,” “Bear,” and “Daddy,” now faces a prison term ranging from 15 years to life.

Prosecutors claimed Moses “forc[ed] women and girls, including minors, into prostitution for his benefit using violence, threats of violence, and psychological manipulation” since at least 2003. He did this by pressuring many of his victims to tattoo his name on their bodies.

“Moses used false premises of love and marriage to initiate sexual relationships with his victims before demanding they work as prostitutes and turn over the money they earned to him,” per the USAO press release.

According to court records obtained by Fox News Digital, Moses tormented one of his victims with a Taser until she gave up being a prostitute.

Another woman was beaten with a belt, had her arms and back sliced, and then Moses bathed her in lemon juice, permanently scarring her.

According to the records, Moses threatened to add salt to the wounds of a third lady after she had been struck with an extension cable.

A fourth prostitute who wished to cease working was allegedly threatened by Moses holding a loaded revolver in her mouth, threatening to kill both her and her child.

Several of his victims “expressed significant concerns for their safety” prior to Moses being charged with further federal offences, according to the prosecution.

Moses was convicted on felony charges for attempted prostitution promotion and profiting from the prostitution of a minor, according to his entry on the New York sex offender register.

According to the New York State Department of Justice, he served time at the Wyoming Correctional Facility in Attica, New York, from May 2007 and December 2009 for those offences. Between September 2012 through January 2016, Moses completed a second prison term at the Gouverneur Correctional Facility for unlawful possession of a firearm.

“Today’s guilty plea brings finality to a case of reprehensible sexual exploitation, brutal assault, and murder,” NYPD Commissioner Edward Caban said in the press release. “I commend and thank our dedicated NYPD detectives, along with our partners in the FBI and the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, for their commitment to investigating and prosecuting this important case.”

Michael Bachrach, Moses’ attorney, could not be reached by Fox News Digital for comment as of publication.
