He’s not the “master” now.
A federal judge in Missouri sentenced a brutal sicko, who called himself “Master Ed,” to 20 years in prison for the sadistic torture of his teenage sex slave.
Edward Bagley Sr., 46, first lured the girl to his trailer in 2003 with promises of a great life.
Federal prosecutors said he groomed the girl with drugs and pornography after his son introduced her as his girlfriend.
Bagley and his wife, Marilyn Bagley, gave the 16-year-old her own room and clothes, but six years of vicious abuse followed.
Bagley whipped, strangled, electrocuted and pierced the young woman with needles — often for an audience of perverts that paid with everything from cash to hamburgers.
U.S. District Judge Dean Whipple sentenced Bagley, 34-year-old Bradley Cook and Dennis Henry, 53, on sex trafficking charges on Wednesday.
Cook and Henry visited Bagley’s trailer in Lebanon, Mo., and paid to torture and have sex with the girl during violent sessions that lasted for hours.
In court, the girl testified that Cook, who went by “PutHer2GoodUse” online, “laughed when I suffered, while I cried and begged,” Fox 4 reported.
He was sentenced to 20 years without parole.
The judge ordered Henry, the former postmaster of Nevada, Mo., to spend 10 years behind bars.
Bagley kept control through a mixture of violence and threats.
The majority of the abuse took place in the trailer for online viewers or in-person creeps, but Bagley also sent his prized slave on the road. He forced the girl to work in a Lebanon strip club and would escort her to customers’ homes for private shows.
In 2006, Bagley drove the girl to visit another Lebanon resident, Michael “The Rodent” Stokes.
The girl arrived naked except for a dog collar and ankle collars with locks. Bagley lugged a duffle bag of torture tools and ordered the girl to “put on a show for us.”
Stokes was impressed that “someone had that much control over someone” and “had never seen anything like it.”
He soon became a regular visitor, paying in steaks, hamburgers, cigarettes, personalized playing cards and cash to see the girl shocked with a crank phone attached to her vaginal and anal openings.
He later fronted $1,000 to send the girl to California for a sexual bondage photo shoot for Taboo magazine.
He used the magazine spread to promote her at strip clubs.
Judge Whipple is set to sentence Stokes and the other defendants on Thursday.
Marilyn Bagley is the only one not expected to serve time. Prosecutors considered the wife as one of Bagley’s victims and offered her probation.
The defendants will share a total restitution bill of $738,250 for the girl.
