NORFOLK, Virginia (Wavi) – In late 2020, a man from North Carolina will serve 18 years in prison for sexually trafficking a girl from Ohio.
He was sentenced in federal court in Newport News on Thursday.
26-year-old Anthony Jermaine Foman from Charlotte via social media persuaded a 14-year-old girl from Ohio to join him and travel to several states in November 2020. He promised to take care of her when she was engaged in prostitution.
Instead of caring for her, he used drugs and violence to force her to continue working as a prostitute in North Carolina, Florida, South Carolina, Delaware, Georgia and Virginia.
Foman also filmed his sexual contacts with a 14-year-old girl and transported child pornography from South Carolina to Virginia.
In December 2020, the girl was found in Hampton with Foman.
Foman was soon arrested.
