MILWAUKEE (AP) - A 38-year-old man told a federal judge that he had dreams and a formal business plan when he got out of state prison - and he only started sex trafficking his girlfriend and three 17-year-old girls so he could raise money for his business ventures.

Dayton Wren was sentenced to 18 years in prison during a hearing Wednesday in federal court. His sentence is concurrent with the rest of a state sentence he’s already serving for violating probation on a reckless injury conviction.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1MTJgjY ) Wren’s attorney, Thomas Erickson, suggested a sentence of roughly 11 years, saying Wren didn’t have many prostitutes and didn’t personally abuse them.

But U.S. District Judge J.P. Stadtmueller gave him 18 years, and remarked on the “depravity” of Wren’s crime.
