Man, 27, gets 10 years for sex trafficking teenage girl in Fort Worth

A 27-year-old man was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in a federal prison for his role in a conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of a teenage girl, officials said.

Deundrea Miller of Fort Worth pleaded guilty to the charge in June, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.

Miller’s former girlfriend, 22-year-old Brittanie Brattain of Saginaw, was sentenced last month to six years in prison for her role in the conspiracy.

According to earlier reports, Miller and Brattain recruited a 15-year-old girl to work as a prostitute from September 2012 to January 2013. She met customers at motels, many off Interstate 35W in Fort Worth.

She ran away in January and was detained by Tarrant County juvenile authorities. She eventually told authorities about Miller and Brattain.
