RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- A man who transported a 16-year-old girl from Sacramento, Calif., to Reno, Nev. in July 2010 for the purposes of prostitution, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison and lifetime supervised release, announced Daniel G. Bogden, United States Attorney for the District of Nevada.

Adam Scott, 27, of Fort McDermitt, Nev., was sentenced on Monday, Oct. 21, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Larry R. Hicks. Scott pleaded guilty on July 25, 2013, to one count of sex trafficking of a minor.

According to the court records, on July 31, 2010, Scott transported a 16-year-old girl from Sacramento to Reno for the purpose of using her for prostitution. Scott knew that the girl was not 18 years old, Bogden says. Scott refused to return the girl to Sacramento and maintained her in Reno until about Aug. 11, 2010.  Bogden says Scott used undue influence and force, including physical assault, in order to cause the girl to engage in commercial sex acts.

11-30-2014 and still here. Only a few days more and THIS story's been up for ONE YEAR! He's sentenced to 15 years,does the story have to run for 15 years too? Are they THAT short on News,or maybe someone is trying to color the public's opinion of this guy by rubbing the story in everybody's faces long-term. They should probably write new updates frequently through the next 15 years,until he's eventually released,so the people will know all about him. Sheesh!

The fact is that this guy is a scum bag that had no trouble harming a 16 year old girl. I am glad he is off the streets.
