Man gets 11 years in trafficking of teen

MINNEAPOLIS – A Woodbury man was sentenced to 11 years in federal prison on charges he trafficked a 15-year-old girl for sex and transported an adult woman across state lines for prostitution.

A jury convicted 52-year-old Stevon Warren of those charges last August. He was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis.

According to evidence at trial, Warren recruited and transported the girl to engage in prostitution, and he also transported the adult woman from Minnesota to Wisconsin for prostitution.

Authorities say police learned of Warren’s activities through ads on Craigslist.

A message left Saturday for his attorney was not returned.
