A Columbia, S.C. man was sentenced to 126 months in prison today for conspiring to engage in sex trafficking of a child in Virginia Beach, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
Travis Brown, 25, pleaded guilty on June 7, 2016 after the Virginia Beach Police Department found that a minor female was being prostituted out of a Virginia Beach hotel by Brown and a co-conspirator. He’s been sentenced to 10 years of supervised release, and he’ll be required to register as a sex offender upon release from prison.
According to the Department of Justice, Brown met the female in March 2016 at a hotel room and took photographs of her for internet advertisements for commercial sex acts two days later. Brown allegedly arranged appointments, provided condoms, set prices for acts and collected proceeds.
Brown was arrested after management tipped Virginia Beach Police Department.
