Ga. man sentenced in prostitution, molestation


The Associated Press

ATLANTA — A 20-year-old Norcross man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for forcing a 14-year-old girl into prostitution.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/U9Jm1g) reports Airick Creighton was sentenced Friday on charges of aggravated child molestation and pimping a minor after he helped a 14-year-old girl advertise prostitution services on Backpage.com. The man was busted during an undercover prostitution sting by the Gwinnett County Police Department.

Prosecutors say Creighton rented the room for the girl, collected money from her and engaged in sexual acts with her.

Creighton is also ordered to serve life on probation and must register as a sex offender.
