SANTA ANA (AP) — A 25-year-old man has been sentenced to more than six years in state prison after pleading guilty to human trafficking and prostitution charges involving 16- and 17-year-old girls.

The Orange County District Attorney’s Office says Michael Wayne Greer and a co-defendant met the girls in early 2013 and persuaded them to perform sex acts for money.
