NJ Man Gets 10 Years For Child Sex Trafficking

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A federal judge in Wilmington has sentenced a New Jersey man to 10 years in prison in a child sex trafficking case.
    
Twenty-one-year-old Yusef Reynolds of Mays Landing was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to child sex trafficking and unlawful possession of a firearm.
    
According to court records, Reynolds met a 15-year-old girl on Facebook in late 2011. The child then ran away from home and began working as a prostitute for Reynolds.  Reynolds later drove the girl and a 20-year old prostitute also working for him to a Newark, Del. hotel, where he engaged in videotaped sex acts with both and posted their images in online advertisements for prostitution.
    
FBI agents traced a phone number in the ads to the Delaware hotel, where they found Reynolds and the girls.
