PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A Wisconsin man has been sentenced to more than five years in prison on a federal sex trafficking charge in South Dakota.
Thirty-four-year-old Thomas Roberts was accused of bringing a woman from Milwaukee to Sioux Falls a year ago for the purpose of prostitution. U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson said Roberts pleaded guilty in August to a charge of transportation for prostitution.
Roberts was sentenced Monday to 63 months in custody to be followed by five years of supervised release. He also was ordered to forfeit four cellphones, a laptop and $1,100 in cash.
