Saying that they used women as “property,” a judge sentenced a pair of Roxbury men, believed to be the first in the state convicted of the new human trafficking law, to at least 10 years in jail. A Suffolk Superior Court judge on Monday sentenced Tyshaun McGhee, 33, to 10 to 15 years in jail and Sidney McGee, 30, to 10 to 12 years in jail. “They essentially treated these women as property to be sold for money,” said Judge Diane Kottmyer. After a five-day trial and about two days of deliberations, a jury found the men guilty last week of three counts each of trafficking a person for sexual servitude. McGhee was

also convicted of two counts of deriving support from prostitution. The jury acquitted them on counts of aggravated rape. A Suffolk district attorney’s office spokesman said they believe the men are the first to be convicted under the law. Prosecutors said the men recruited drug-addicted women in September 2012, supplied them with narcotics and promises of wealth and then coerced them into sexual activity with men who answered online ads. Assistant District Attorney Jennifer OKeeffe requested that each man serve 15 to 21 years and called the men’s actions “despicable.” The state’s human trafficking law was enacted in 2012 after several pushes to get Massachusetts lawmakers to pass a bill. Massachusetts was one of the last states to pass a human trafficking law.

Impact statement

Victim speaks of hopelessness During the trial, two of the women testified against the men. One of them submitted a victim impact statement to be read during Monday’s sentencing. “When I was first victimized, my self-esteem and self-worth were crushed. I felt hopeless and lost,” the woman wrote in her statement. “Since this crime has occurred, I have not been able to maintain an intimate relationship with another male due to flashbacks of physical trauma. I have had a hard time this past year maintaining my sobriety because I have not wanted to deal and face what happened.”

Family, friends, police search for missing BU alum A big night out. Those who know Eric Munsell said he was last seen with friends celebrating his birthday Saturday night in Boston. Family members and friends of a recent Boston University graduate are searching for him after the 24-year-old went missing after a night out celebrating his birthday. Eric Munsell, who lives in the North End, was last seen Saturday night by friends who had joined him at Market on Broad Street to celebrate his birthday that day, Boston police and his family and friends said. “This kid is not a troublemaker. This kid is the most

straight-laced kid in the world. It makes no sense that he just disappeared. He doesn’t show up to work … [Monday]? No way. That’s not Eric. Something bad happened,” Munsell’s father, Keith Munsell, said during a telephone interview as he checked into a Boston area hotel. He and Munsell’s mother came to Boston to help in the search. Munsell graduated from Boston University in 2012 and works for General Electric, his father said. Boston police put out a missing person alert on Monday asking for the public’s help to locate Munsell. They described Munsell as about 6 feet 1 inch tall, about 180 pounds and having a scar on his left cheek. Police said he was last seen wearing a blue checkered shirt and blue jeans. Friends have created a Facebook page to gather support to locate Munsell.

During the Q-and-A, Mayor Marty Walsh said he supports lifting the cap on charter schools, and told one parent to contact his office directly to look into allegations of bullying that the parent said had gone unaddressed by teachers. Many questions surrounded school funding. “We are actually investing an additional $36 million in our schools next year.

Walsh obliged, saying he supports residents’ constitutional right to carry guns, as well as City Councilor Ayanna Pressley’s legislation that would eliminate the cap on alcohol licenses for restaurants. In response to a complaint about South Boston traffic, Walsh said there is “a discussion of a traffic plan underway.” More online discussions are expected soon, he said. “Social media is an opportunity to directly connect with constituents in real time, and engage on a personal level,” Walsh said in response to one participant. “These conversations are a fantastic way for me to hear what is on your mind, and I use this information to inform what we focus on in the city. Where I can, I always want to hear directly from constituents.”

Tips on slashing your grocery bill Money. Melissa D’Arabian, the host of Food Network’s “Ten Dollar Dinners� shares her tips.

Melissa D’Arabian, host of “Ten Dollar Dinners,� might have her hands full with four daughters and a TV show, but she still makes saving money a priority. She even partnered with CouponsForChange. org, where shoppers can save Bonus tip

Try a new cut of meat Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are easy to cook and low in fat, but they’re not the only source of protein. D’Arabian confesses that she was reluctant to try dierent cuts of meat until she lived in France and saw people using chicken thighs and legs. “Braising is such a great way to extract amazing avor from the cheapest cuts of meat,â€? she says.

money and feed a child simply by using coupons. Here, she shares her top four tips on spending less for more.

Find your loss leader

1

D’Arabian says grocery stores will typically offer a “loss leader�: a special deal on meat to draw in customers. She suggests looking at the front page of a grocery store flier when deciding where to make your shopping trip. “That’s where they’re going to put their best protein deals, and then you can decide if you want it or not,� she explains. D’Arabian also says though space is often a commodity in urban areas, it doesn’t hurt to grab an extra pack or two of your favorite proteins when they’re on sale to pop in the freezer.

Front-load your meal with cheap protein

2

D’Arabian says an easy way to stretch pricey cuts of meat is to start meals with inexpensive proteins like beans or eggs. She says this is especially useful when serving guests. “If you do a black

bean hummus or white bean and tomato bruschetta and people fill up on these nice, fiber and protein-filed gems, they’re going to sit down at the table not ravenously hungry,� she says. “They’re going to naturally eat less and not feel like they got cheated.�

Have a ‘bean night’

4

D’Arabian says she has what she calls a “bean night� once a week. She doesn’t always serve beans, but the main course will always consist of very inexpensive proteins. “Having one ‘bean night’ or scrambled eggs night in your schedule is automatically going to save the average family a ton of money,� she says. D’Arabian likes making dishes like crustless quiche, beans and eggs or quinoa with beans or lentils on these nights. You’d be surprised at how many recipes there are using these cheap, but yummy proteins.

Buy the cheapest produce

what fruits and vegetables you want to buy in advance, D’Arabian suggests waiting until you get there to see what the best deals are. “Unlike everything else, whatever is cheapest in produce is also what is best,� she says. “We think if we spend more money, we’ll get something better, but when there’s an overstock that pushes prices down and that means it’s in season.� D’Arabian also says it’s key not to turn up your nose at frozen vegetables, which are convenient, nutritious and inexpensive.

Olympics! The fame, the glory — the curling pants? Medals schmedals, y’all. Who cares who is winning what when there are funny pants involved, specifically those worn by the Norwegian curling team. The team first made a fashion splash in Vancouver in 2010 by donning the vibrant gear, made by Loudmouth Golf, and now they are continuing the tradition in Sochi. A Facebook page honoring their outlandish trousers — called The Pants Army — has racked up more than 545,000 followers. They wear a different pair for each game — and are singlehandedly keeping the sport of curling interesting. Meanwhile, Johnny Quinn, the U.S. bobsledder who went viral a few days ago after he tweeted a photo of having to break down his stuck bathroom door, found himself trapped again, this time in an elevator. “No one is going to believe this,” he wrote, “but we just got stuck in an elevator.” Quinn was with teammate Nick Cunningham and U.S. Bobsled technical director David Cripps at the time. Cripps couldn’t resist tweeting a joke. “Now we’re stuck in the elevator! Can [Quinn] get us out?” And last, but not least, is poor Bob Costas, who is suffering from pink eye and is being forced to wear glasses. The debacle has its own hashtags (#saveBobCostaseye, #pinkisthenewblack) and even its own Twitter handle (@BobCostasEyes).

You just don’t. You don’t control it,” she says. Another thing she’s learned?

Fragmented relationships can be fulfilling, but not forever

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we called up Daniel Jones and got him to reveal some of the biggest love lessons he’s learned after reading the roughly 50,000 stories that have landed in his inbox. If the idea of dating overwhelms you, get offline. “There’s this belief that the more people you meet or go out with, the more chance you have of finding that one special person,” Jones says. “But from what I’ve seen, people have much better luck starting with a small group instead of searching for that perfect person within dozens and dozens.” Jones tells us that even with the popularity of online dating, people are still falling in love the same ways as in the past: by meeting people through friends, work or hobbies. “Less is more,” he says. “Go on a trip with a small group of people or join a club

“In the dating world, it’s easy to break yourself up into pieces and have sex with someone without caring about that person and then have a really deep connection with someone you don’t have sex with,” Jones says. And it isn’t always a bad thing; it just shows you aren’t ready to be in a full relationship. “When you’re in school, in your first job or your 20s, not everyone wants the responsibility of a full relationship,” he explains. But if you do want the real thing, you have to give it your all.

Don’t be a muggle

Harry Potter does Orlando This summer, Universal Orlando Resort will open its long-awaited Diagon Alley expansion of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The new whimsically themed area will double the size of the sweeping zone already dedicated to Potter’s enchanting world, bringing even more of the boy wizard’s adventures to life. The expansion will span both theme parks: Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure. Just like in the books and movies, guests will travel between the two areas aboard the Hogwarts Express.

Make a splash! Freedom of the Seas makes a stop in CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s private island destination, which features one of the Bahamas’ largest water parks. Daredevils can brave a 40-story drop on one of the world’s largest inflatable water slides. Freedom offers a variety of indoor activities for all ages, including a 3-D movie theater, indoor skating rink Studio B and the Arcadia Theater, where musicals, comedy and magic shows all included in the cruise fare. Family-friendly discos evolve into adults-only venues late at night, while the On Air Club karaoke bar gives any songbird’s voice a chance to soar.

The idea of a family vacation often evokes anxious visions straight out of a “National Lampoon” film. But not all trips with the kids have to put stress on parents, or cater only to the little critters. As part of Royal Caribbean International’s collaboration with Universal Orlando Resort, vacationers of all ages can spend 10 days getting the best adventures of both land and sea. The cruise package starts off with a few days at Universal

The daycare and nursery keeps kids of all ages amused with games, crafts and activities from early morning into the evening, and is included in the cost of the cruise.

NYFW: Tommy Hilfiger takes us to the slopes Fashion week diary

and girls about town — Angel Haze, A$AP Illz and Hannah Bronfman are getting the loudest woo-hoos — to drive home the collection’s “real people/real style” theme. The “models” are all so diverse and United Colors of Benetton-y with their perfectly high cheekbones, mussed fros and elaborate tattoo sleeves. When did “real” New York become so pretty? But we’re here to talk about the clothes, and it’s frankly nice to see them on a wider range of bodies. The collection is built around black — that classic New York go-to color — with a few graphic moments of white, navy, pink, gray and yellow mixed in. What stands out is how edgy the clothes have become. Five years ago, I associated DKNY with cute dresses for that entry-level job. But the collection has evolved to a place that feels a little more left-of-center, cooler and in tune with the brand’s streetwear roots. Standouts include the range of outerwear such as a fur-sleeved parka and

Eagles fly high again, capture 2014 Beanpot NCAA. Boston College won its fifth straight Beanpot trophy and extended NU’s title drought yet again. Boston College remains the king of Hub hockey for yet another year while Northeastern’s Beanpot drought is now creeping up on three decades. The Eagles stunned the Huskies with a late third period surge to win, 4-1, and capture their fifth consecutive tournament trophy. Boston College captain Patrick Brown silenced a boisterous Northeastern crowd with 14:30 gone in the third period as he redirected an Isaac MacLeod shot past Huskies goaltender Clay Witt while falling to the ice. The score put BC up, 2-1, and Northeastern collapsed thereafter as Johnny Gaudreau scored on an empty net and Brown added another. The Eagles certainly sweated for the 19th Beanpot crown in school history, however, as Ryan Belonger nearly gave the Huskies an early advantage in the first. The referees ruled that just before Belonger’s rebound effort crossed the goal line, the net was dislodged and the goal was waived off. Northeastern’s lone goal came in the second period off a BC turnover as John Stevens beat Thatcher Demko

The Patriots are in need of a defensive upgrade, as their defense once again lagged behind the offense in terms of respectability. Missouri defensive lineman Michael Sam’s name was on the radar of draftniks prior to Sunday night, but when Sam announced to the world that he was gay, he immediately became the most recognizable face in the draft, outside of Johnny Manziel. The social impact of Sam entering the league — he will likely be the first openly gay player drafted in a major sport — will be discussed in great detail. But, on the surface, it appears as though teams like the Pats will only be asking questions like, “Can he play?” “We’re about winning,” Pats owner Robert Kraft told the Boston Herald. “And anyone who can come in here and help us win, I personally don’t care what their ethnic background is, their racial background, the gender preference. If they can help us win, and they’re about team first, then I’m happy to have him here.” METRO
