BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A man accused of human trafficking in the Bismarck-Mandan area has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge and been released from custody

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1W7FIkn ) that Abdul Vann on Thursday pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution and was sentenced to five years in prison, with all but the 125 days he spent in jail suspended.

Vann could have faced up to 20 years on the initial charge. Prosecutors reduced it after being unable to locate a key witness in the case.
