Ohio Man Gets Life Term In Sex Trafficking Case

CLEVELAND (AP) — A Northeast Ohio man accused of prostituting four women and helping to keep them addicted to drugs has been sentenced to life in prison.

A federal jury convicted Jeremy Mack of Elyria in February on charges that included conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, sex trafficking of a minor and drug trafficking.

Mack’s attorney, Lawrence Whitney, declined to comment on the sentence but said the trial involved complex issues that will get an airing in the court of appeals.

An FBI and Elyria police investigation says that the 38-year-old Mack and an Avon Lake woman worked together for months to keep the young women addicted to drugs and would make them work as prostitutes in exchange for drugs.
