A Chicago man has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for forcing teenage girls into prostitution.
Arnell Chase Misher lured girls aged 13, 16 and 17 to engage in sex with men for money during the summer of 2012.
The 31-year-old Misher admitted in a plea agreement that he helped prepare an online advertisement featuring explicit photos of the 17-year-old. He said he accompanied the 13-year-old to an area known for prostitution and waited for her to deliver money to him from her sexual encounters with men.
Misher and a co-defendant, 23-year-old Braundii Young, each pleaded guilty in December to one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking by force, fraud and coercion. Young is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 27.
