Man receives 17 years for child sex trafficking

SANTA ANA, Calif. — A man who prostituted two Florida teen girls across the country has been sentenced to 17 1/2 years in federal prison in Santa Ana.

Dwayne Lawson pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of sex trafficking of children as part of a plea agreement.

Lawson was arrested in April 2009, soon after Los Angeles police arrested a 17-year-old girl for prostitution.

Federal prosecutors say Lawson contacted the girl on Myspace in 2008, promising to make her a star and giving her a bus ticket from Florida to Las Vegas. He admitted later to bringing the girl to Orange County to work as a prostitute.

Prosecutors say he drove a second girl from Miami to Orange County in 2008, having her engage in commercial sex acts along the way.
