Texas Man Gets 40 Years for Prostituting 14-Year-Old Girl

A Texas man will spend up to 40 years in a state prison for sex trafficking a 14-year-old girl and forcing her into prostitution.

His girlfriend also pleaded guilty and faces sentencing in the near future.

A court in Travis County, Texas, sentenced 28-year-old Kedrick Nelms to spend 40 years in prison following his June 20 conviction for human trafficking and compelling the prostitution of a minor, KXAN reported on Thursday evening.

“As a result of this successful, first-of-its-kind partnership between my office, the Travis County District Attorney’s office and the Texas Department of Public Safety, a dangerous and despicable human trafficker has been brought to justice,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement.

His girlfriend pleaded guilty to her role in the conspiracy earlier this week.
