Md. Man Gets Prison for Taking Minor to Va.

Posted:
RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- A 36-year-old Clinton, Maryland, man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for transporting a minor to Virginia for prostitution.

The government says Mustafa Muhammad was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Richmond. A jury found him guilty of the charge in June.

According to evidence presented at trial, Muhammad met a 16-year-old runaway online in February 2014 and began communicating with her. He later met with her and she began trading sex for money.

The transporting charge stems from their travels from Maryland to a motel in Fredericksburg in March, where he advertised the girl for prostitution. A Stafford County sheriff investigating prostitution saw the ad and arranged to meet the juvenile, discovering she was a runaway.

Besides the prison term, Muhammad will also have supervised release.
