BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The U.S. Attorney's Office announced Thursday a Lockport man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for sex trafficking.

The attorney's office says over the course of three years 52-year-old Oliver Kimmons solicited and coerced young and opiate-addicted women to have sex with paying customers in exchange for drugs.

He drove the women to Western New York farms, dairies, and Indian reservations where the women engaged in sex acts with paying customers.

Kimmons collected money from the customers and then "paid" the women in heroin.

He also had sex with the women in exchange for drugs.
