PORTLAND, Ore. A Portland man was sent to prison Monday for sex trafficking a 17-year old Beaverton girl.

Keith Lawrence McMurray, 32, will spend 17 years behind bars and 10 years of supervised release for sex trafficking of a minor. He will also have to register as a sex offender.

Sex trafficking a minor continues to be a huge concern for this community, said U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall. Young girls and boys in our community are preyed upon for commercial sex, and are used by traffickers as simply a way to gain money.

Investigators said McMurray recruited the victim into prostitution when she was just 17. They said he advertised about her online and filmed sex acts with her during the time she was a minor.
