UPDATE: Dover man guilty in connection to human trafficking case

Donnell Singletary, 33, of Dover

A man was sentenced to time in prison, after authorities say he pleaded guilty to his role in a 2017 human trafficking incident, in Delaware.

The Delaware Department of Justice says on Friday, Deputy Attorney General Periann Doko secured a guilty plea and prison sentence for 33-year-old Donnell Singletary, of Dover, on the charges of human trafficking of a minor and conspiracy second degree. The charges stem for a joint investigation in May 2017 which led to five arrests. 

In May 2017, Singletary was involved in the trafficking of a 16-year-old girl in the Dover area. 

Singletary was sentenced to two years in prison, followed by six months in home confinement, and one year of probation. 

The 33-year-old must also register as a Tier II sex offender.
