Long sentence for child's pimp

Long sentence for child's pimp, Seattle P-I, May 3, 2008:

A Seattle pimp who turned a 12-year-old girl into a prostitute received an extraordinary five-year prison term Friday.

U.S. District Judge John Coughenour cited the victim's age in sentencing Sean Hart to a term that is almost three times longer than federal guidelines.
Coughenour also sentenced a second man -- who had paid for the girl to be flown to Seattle and had turned her over to the first defendant -- to 30 months in prison, another upward departure from the guidelines.
