Man In Colorado Gets 472 Years In Prison, Longest Sentence Ever For Human Trafficking

A convicted child sex trafficker in Colorado was sentenced to 472 years in prison on Tuesday, the longest sentence ever for a human trafficking case in United States history.

Brock Franklin, 31, was found guilty on human trafficking, sexual exploitation of a child, child prostitution, and kidnapping charges in March, FOX 31 Denver reports, for operating a sex trafficking ring that preyed upon women and children.
