HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Middletown man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for forcing women and girls into a Hartford-area prostitution ring.
U.S. District Judge Christopher Droney in Hartford sentenced 55-year-old Dennis Paris to the lower end of a range recommended in federal sentencing guidelines. He could have received a life term. A jury convicted him last year of sex trafficking, promoting prostitution and other crimes.
Federal prosecutors say Paris used a 14-year-old girl and other minors in his prostitution business and forced two adults to perform commercial sex acts.
Paris was among 10 people arrested in the investigation. He told the judge that he didn't do all the things he's accused of doing, and he insisted he was only running an escort service.
