Las Vegas man sentenced in Utah prostitution case

ST. GEORGE, Utah — A Las Vegas man convicted in a southern Utah prostitution case will serve 180 days in a county jail.

A Utah judge sentenced Leroy Haley Wednesday and ordered him to pay $1,500 in fines.

Investigators arrested Haley in sting operation at a St. George hotel last year.

Prosecutors say he and a 20-year-old Las Vegas woman brought a teenage girl to Utah and forced her to perform sex acts for money.

Haley pleaded guilty in June to human trafficking, two counts of exploiting a prostitute and assault by a prisoner.

The Spectrum of St. George reports 20-year-old Francis Mary Uhrhan pleaded guilty in January to prostitution and exploiting a prostitute.

She served eight months in jail and is being supervised by probation officials in Nevada.
