    A Georgia couple will spend the next 10 years in prison for their part in a prostitution ring that employed underage girls in several states, including Virginia.

    Quintavis Deonte Dumas, 23, and Koya Tiffany Rooke, 24, both of Snellville, Ga., were found guilty of sex trafficking of a child back in September.

    According to court documents, Dumas and Rooke rented cars to transport the teens and rented hotel rooms where the commercial sex acts took place. Rooke also served as one of the prostitutes.

    Dumas and Rooke, who prosecutors say were dating, were also ordered to pay $17,572 in restitution. 

    Earlier this year, 27-year-old Edwin Barcus and 21-year-old Joshua Dumas were sentenced to 25 and 20 years in prison, respectively, for their participation in the same ring.

    The ring was discovered in December 2012, when an undercover Fairfax County officer answered an ad on Backpage.com and set up a sting operation at the Hyatt House hotel in Herndon.
