Toledo man sentenced for sex trafficking of a minor

A Toledo man was sentenced today to more than 18 years in prison for sex trafficking of a minor.

Taurus Devault, 27, was sentenced to 224 months in a federal prison by U.S. District Court Judge James Carr. Devault pleaded guilty in May, 2013, to conspiracy to use a facility in interstate commerce to facilitate prostitution and sex trafficking of a minor.

A co-defendant, Duane Hill, 27, was sentenced in December to 200 months in prison for his role in the case.

The men posted pictures on backpage.com that were used to arrange meetings with prostitutes at Toledo motels.
