WACO, Texas (KWTX) A Central Texas man was sentenced to a long term in federal prison Thursday after pleading guilty on Aug. 6 to two counts of sex-trafficking of children.

U.S. District Judge Alan Albright sentenced Riheem Rexdual Robinson to 260 months in federal prison, fined him $2,000 and ordered that he spend 10 years on supervised release after he completes the term.

“Our children are our nation’s most precious resource,” said FBI San Antonio Division Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs.

“Those who would recruit and exploit them for the purpose of underage prostitution will have to answer for their despicable crimes, and that’s the strong message that was sent in today’s sentencing.”

Robinson admitted that “in April 2012, he recruited, enticed, harbored and transported a minor and caused that minor to engage in a commercial sex act for which Robinson profited financially. Robinson also admitted to committing the same acts with a second minor in October 2016,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a press release.

The case was investigated by the FBI and the Temple Police Department.
