Md. Man Gets 10 Years for Sex Trafficking of Minor

A Frederick, Md., man was sentenced to 10 years in prison for sex trafficking of a minor, federal prosecutors said.

Duane Mason, 36, was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

He pleaded guilty to allegations that he and associate James Davis recruited a girl below the age of 16 to work as a prostitute last year.

They were arrested after an undercover police officer who answered an online advertisement gave the girl $200 after meeting her near a Gaithersburg motel.

Davis has pleaded guilty to distributing narcotics to a minor. He faces the possibility of 10 years in prison at his sentencing Sept. 19.
