CLEVELAND (AP) - A federal court has rejected an appeal by a northeast Ohio man serving life in prison for prostituting four young women whom he kept addicted to drugs.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday affirmed the conviction and sentence of Jeremy Mack of Elyria. He was sentenced to life in June 2014 on charges that included conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, sex trafficking of a minor, and drug trafficking.

An FBI and Elyria police investigation found that the 40-year-old Mack and an Avon Lake woman worked together for months to keep the young women addicted to drugs and would make them work as prostitutes in exchange for drugs.

Among other things, Mack’s appeal contended the evidence was insufficient convict him.
