AMARILLO -- An Amarillo man was sentenced Monday in federal court in Missouri for transporting a minor to engage in prostitution.

40-year-old Jerrod Lamonte Marshall pleaded guilty back in February.

He will serve 12 years and seven months.

Early last year, a 15-year-old victim was arrested in Joplin, Missouri for prostitution.

After her arrest, she told police that she had worked as a prostitute in Tulsa before he took her to Joplin.
