2 Oceanside men get 10 years for sex trafficking girls

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Two San Diego County men have been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to the sex trafficking of children who were forced into prostitution rings by street gangs.

Prosecutors tell the Los Angeles Times that 20-year-old Malcolm Jamal Allen and 23-year-old Devon Leontae Sutton, both from Oceanside, entered the pleas Monday, admitting to child sex trafficking by force, fraud and coercion.

Authorities say the gangs used websites like Facebook, Twitter and Craigslist to find customers.

Many of the groups' young prostitutes were runaways.

Six other defendants tied to the prostitution ring have also pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.
