2 sentenced for sex trafficking

BALTIMORE — Federal prosecutors say two people have been sentenced to 10 years in prison for sex trafficking of minors in Maryland, New York and Washington, D.C.

Twenty-five-year-old Byron Thompson and 29-year-old Lea Bell, both of Reisterstown, were also ordered at sentencing Thursday to register as sex offenders.

According to court documents, Thompson and Bell recruited minors to engage in commercial sex acts.

They rented more 100 hotel rooms and recruited sex workers through friends, clubs, bars and the Internet. They posted ads on the Internet to attract sex customers.

From January to February 2009, Thompson and Bell prostituted two 15-year-old girls and one 17-year-old girl in Maryland.
