Fort Worth Man Sentenced in Sex Trafficking Case

A North Texas man has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison for forcing a 15-year-old girl into prostitution and advertising her online for sex.

A federal judge in Fort Worth on Tuesday sentenced 27-year-old Deundrea R. Miller. The Fort Worth man last June pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of a minor.

A co-defendant, 22-year-old Brittanie Brattain of Saginaw, was sentenced last month to six years in prison after pleading guilty to the same count.

Investigators said Miller and Brattain last fall met the girl, took photos of her in her underwear and advertised her online as a "date" or "escort."

Prosecutors said the girl was a prostitute for about five months, giving the money to Miller and Brattain, before fleeing from the pair.
