A Buffalo man has been sentenced to five to ten years in prison for promoting prostitution.
According to the District Attorney's office, 28-year-old Randon Moultrie pleaded guilty to five counts of promoting prostitution in the second degree and four counts of promoting prostitution in the third degree.
DA Michael Flaherty says in addition to the sentence, Justice Russell Buscaglia required Moultrie to sign orders of protection - agreeing not to have contact with any of his four victims through October 2033.
Officials say Moultrie ran a prostitution enterprise and used adult Internet sites and social media to solicit paying customers for the women he was promoting. They say he exploited many women, including a 14-year-old and an 18-year-old.
"When the prices were agreed upon and the acts were agreed upon and when these strangers from the Internet were done with the 14-year-old girl's body,it was this defendant who profited," says Assistant District Attorney Ryan Haggerty who persecuted the case.
