2 face life in prison for sex trafficking teenage girls

ALEXANDRIA (AP) Two men face up to life in prison for trafficking teenage prostitutes across the Washington area.

A federal jury in northern Virginia found 28-year-old Ivan Williams and 26-year-old Dennis Davis guilty Wednesday, The Washington Post reported.

Several former prostitutes testified against them, including two women who pleaded guilty to helping traffic minors. Defense attorneys emphasized the evidence in the case came largely from co-conspirators who were likely to get reduced sentences for their testimony, and had lied to law enforcement in the past, according to the paper.

Williams and Davis will be sentenced in April.
