(GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.) -- A Grand Rapids man will serve 30 years in federal prison for child sex trafficking.
Eddie Allen Jackson, 31, was sentenced on Tuesday, the U.S. Attorney's office reports.
In the summer of 2012, Jackson allegedly recruited teenage girls ages 14 to 16 to work for him as prostitutes. The girls were in 8th, 9th, and 10th grades at the time.
At the sentencing, the judge said Jackson's victims were "stripped of innocence and decency that these girls were entitled to have."
