Hartford man gets 15 years for sex trafficking minors

BRIDGEPORT — A Hartford man convicted of recruiting two teenage girls into becoming prostitutes has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors say 26-year-old Christopher Hamlett, of Hartford, was also sentenced Monday to five years of probation.

Hamlett was convicted by a federal jury last October of sex trafficking of a minor, using a facility of interstate commerce to promote commercial sex, and production of child pornography.

Prosecutors say between August 2017 and November 2017 he enticed girls ages 16 and 17 to engage in prostitution at hotels in Hartford and Wethersfield. He also took sexually explicit photographs of each girl to use for online ads for prostitution.

He also threatened one victim when he thought she had not given him his full share of the money she made.
