Oregon woman gets 2 years for child prostitution operation

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) _ An Oregon woman has been sentenced to nearly two years in prison in connection to an alleged commercial child sex trafficking operation.

The Columbian reports (http://bit.ly/2blvih4 ) that 26-year-old Veronica Britt, of Portland, was sentenced Thursday in Clark County to 21 months in prison and 12 months of community custody. She previously pleaded guilty to first-degree promoting prostitution and communicating with a minor for immoral purposes.

Britt was among six people from three Oregon cities and Vancouver who were arrested in October in connection to a sting operation by the FBI's Child Exploitation Task Force. She was identified as the driver for an underage girl who was meeting up with someone at a hotel for sexual purposes.
