OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - A federal judge sentenced a Hattiesburg man to 30 years for human trafficking.
The man is identified as Raymorris Asencio, 32. He was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Oxford.
He was convicted for human trafficking and transporting a minor across state lines to engage in prostitution.
"I want to thank the private citizens in Oxford who noticed the minor with Asencio and notified the Oxford Police Department of their concern for the minor's safety," said U.S. Attorney William C. Lamar.
