SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced a Savannah man to life in prison for his role in forcing minors into prostitution

Court records show a judge sentenced Jeremy Grant, 26, to life in prison for conspiracy to engage in the sex trafficking of minors.

Federal prosecutors said in a Tuesday news release that Grant recruited vulnerable minors by offering them food and shelter and then used verbal threats and physical abuse to force them into prostitution.
