52-year-old Milton Shelton was sentenced by the jury on Thursday in Judge Timothy Henderson’s courtroom. The jury recommended 30 years in prison.
On Wednesday, Shelton was found guilty of human trafficking.
In 2016, two women were rescued by an undercover agent with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics. The women told investigators they were forced into prostitution by Shelton. They were taken into protective custody.
Shelton’s sentencing date is set for 1:30 p.m. on January 31, 2018.
