Man sentenced for child sex trafficking


RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A man has been sentenced to 15 years and eight months in prison for child sex trafficking in Richmond.

Forty-one-year-old Troy Parker was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Richmond.

Parker pleaded guilty in February to one count of child sex trafficking.

Court documents show Parker met an underage girl in Richmond, took her to a motel and sent photos of her to an Internet site offering her for sexual acts in exchange for money. Parker was arrested in May 2013 after an undercover FBI agent arranged a meeting.
