KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) - Benton County prosecutors are seeking a prison sentence of more than four years for a Kent man who forced a Kennewick teen into prostitution.

The 20-year-old, Deepak Sing Samra, pleaded guilty Monday to promoting prostitution and other charges.

The Tri-City Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1bJ3yui) prosecutors agreed to a plea deal to ensure the victim does not have to testify at a trial.
