RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- 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.
