MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A federal judge in Memphis has sentenced a man to 10 years in prison on a sex trafficking conviction.
The Commercial Appeal reported prosecutors and the defense agreed in recommending the term, which is below federal guidelines for the offense.
Vincent Jones was sentenced for conspiring with his girlfriend, Kala Bray, to traffic teenage girls. Both sides said the mastermind was Bray, who is serving a 14-year prison sentence.
Prosecutors said Jones and Bray told two girls, who were 15 and 16 years old in 2001, they were taking them to a Houston water park before pressing them into prostitution.
At his hearing, Jones' shirt was wet after another inmate jumped him and water was used to wash away pepper spray used to break up the fight.
