OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - A federal judge has sentenced two people for bringing prostitutes from Memphis to Oxford for commercial sex acts.

Ricky Robertson was given 15 years in prison Monday after pleading guilty to sex trafficking conspiracy while Ladarius Jackson was ordered to serve more than 2 years in prison for pleading guilty to traveling across state lines for prostitution.

The sentences came from Chief District Judge Sharion Aycock.

Prosecutors say Robertson also admitted to using fraud and coercion to control the money the prostitutes made from their work.
