PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A judge sentenced a Portland man to 204 months in federal prison on Monday for sex trafficking a 17-year-old Beaverton girl.
Keith Lawrence McMurray, 32, pleaded guilty to one count of sex trafficking a minor on Sept. 4, 2013.
Upon his release from custody, the court ruled McMurray will serve a 10-year period of supervised release and must abide by a number of conditions, including registering as a sex offender, during his supervised release.
“Sex trafficking a minor continues to be a huge concern for this community,” said U.S.
Attorney Amanda Marshall in a press release. “Young girls and boys in our community are preyed upon for commercial sex and are used by traffickers as simply a way to gain money. We will continue to
prosecute aggressively anyone who exploits, aids or recruits our children into this dark world.”
The government alleged that McMurray recruited the victim into prostitution when she
was 17-years-old and used various prostitution web sites to advertise the minor and even posed
as a customer in order to promote her on one of the web sites.
In addition, McMurray allegedly filmed sex acts with the 17-year-old while he was on post-prison supervision.
