A Buffalo man has been sentenced to five to ten years in prison for promoting prostitution.

In June, Randon Moultrie pleaded guilty to five counts of Promoting Prostitution in the Second Degree and four counts of Promoting Prostitution in the Third Degree.

Prosecutors say Moultrie ran a prostitution enterprise, using adult internet sites to solicit patrons for the women he was promoting. Moultrie often used motel rooms in Amherst and Tonawanda for the enterprise. Moultrie exploited women for his own financial gain, prosecutors said, including a 14-year-old girl.

"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 prosecuted the case.

Moultrie is required to sign orders of protection for his four victims, agreeing not to have contact with them through October of 2033.
