He was charged three years ago, but only now are details emerging regarding a Kelowna man who was trying to lure young women into the sex trade.

It was in when Kelowna RCMP said that Rypiak may have tried to coerce up to nine women into the sex trade — some as young as Vancouver man pleads guilty to being a pimp for nine victims.
In the end, only four victims came forward, but that was enough to prosecute Rypiak on several prostitution related charges. In sentencing arguments on Tuesday, the crown said Rypiak would find his victims on the popular online dating site Plenty of Fish.
In , he met an year-old woman in West kelowna and groomed her into becoming a prostitute, with all of the earnings going to Rypiak. The crown says Rypiak groomed three other women, convincing them to become prostitutes and move to Kelowna.
One was from Saskatchewan, the other from Edmonton while the third was from the South Okanagan. Woman jailed four years for luring year-old girl into prostitution. Rypiak pleaded guilty to some of the charges while the others were dropped. In victim impact statements, one woman says she feels dirty and damaged. Another said she can no longer be touched while yet another said she feels broken.
