DENVER (AP) - A 41-year-old man accused of running a prostitution ring and forcing a 17-year-old girl to have sex with nine men over the course of five days has been sentenced to 24 years in prison.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1svIfd5 ) Carlos Lebron Stegall pleaded guilty in June to pimping and second-degree assault for causing serious injuries to the teen. Prosecutors say he prostituted the girl between Oct. 29 and Nov. 4 at a motel in Aurora.

Investigators say the victim told them Stegall taught her about the escort business, how to be a prostitute and how to determine whether potential clients were members of law enforcement.

The girl eventually told her father she had been forced into prostitution.
