FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida man is facing a potential life prison sentence after he was convicted of using violence to force a woman into prostitution.

Sentencing is set for Nov. 25 for 35-year-old Shaun Eric McKinley, who was recently convicted of kidnapping and sex trafficking charges by a federal jury in Fort Lauderdale. McKinley faces a minimum of 15 years in prison and a maximum of life.

According to trial testimony, McKinley forced the 28-year-old victim into prostitution in December 2013. She was required to have up to seven dates a day, seven days a week, with all of her earnings going to McKinley. She was assaulted and once tied up with electric cords.

Evidence showed the woman escaped in May when McKinley’s friend let her out of a locked car.
