A 25-year-old St. Paul man has been sentenced to more than 17 years for his role in sex trafficking a minor female.
According to a release from the Washington County Attorney's Office, Joshua Carlisle was sentenced to 10 years for sex trafficking and seven-and-a-half years for promotion of prostitution involving a 14-year-old girl.
The release, citing the criminal complaint, says the 14-year-old girl told police Carlisle had trafficked her on Backpage.com. She said she had sex with at least two men for money, which she then gave to Carlisle.
The attorney's office said it worked with police departments from Woodbury, Oakdale, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Stillwater, and Forest Lake, as well as the Washington County Sheriff's Office and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, to recover the girl and secure Carlisle's conviction.
