A soldier formerly stationed at Fort Meade has been sentenced to 17 1/2 years in federal prison for running a brothel out of his Millersville apartment.
Prosecutors say Craig Corey conspired with three other men from his hometown of Chillicothe, Ohio, to bring women to Maryland to work as prostitutes. He pleaded guilty to sex trafficking by force, sex trafficking of a minor and related offenses.
The men recruited at least 12 women from Ohio, New York, Virginia and other states to join the brothel and advertised their services on Craigslist. Prosecutors say one of the prostitutes was 16 years old.
The men also dealt drugs out of the apartment. Corey's three co-defendants -- Jacob Tyler, Robert Harris and Richard Johnson -- pleaded guilty to similar charges.
