ATLANTA (AP) — U.S. Attorney's officials say a metro Atlanta man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on sex trafficking charges.
Officials said Monday that 30-year-old Demario Hillmon, of Douglasville, Ga. was sentenced for his involvement in transporting a minor across state lines for prostitution. Authorities say Hillmon targeted young girls on social networking sites and enticed them into working as prostitutes by making false promises to them of money and gifts.
Officials say Hillmon arranged for the girls to engage in sex acts in Georgia and Alabama and pocketed most of the money.
Hillmon is ordered to serve 10 years of supervised release after his prison sentence.
