Man sentenced to prison on pimping charges

A 31-year-old man was sentenced Monday to 47 months to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to pimping charges in March.

Christopher Thomas pleaded guilty to one felony count each of pandering, coercion and living from the earnings of a prostitute during jury selection.

As part of a deal, prosecutors dropped one count of sex trafficking and living from the earnings of a prostitute.

Thomas was one of the first people to be charged under Nevada’s new sex trafficking law aimed at locking up pimps for lengthy prison terms.

He was sentenced by Clark County District Judge Doug Smith.
