A man with a previous conviction for sex offenses has been sentenced in Sacramento Superior Court to 10 years in prison for persuading a minor to engage in a commercial sex act.
Kristopher Kilpatrick, 26, is also required to register as a sex offender, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release.
Officials said Kilpatrick began dating the 17-year-old victim and then persuaded her to work as a prostitute, pimping her for more than two months. He posted photos of her in various states of undress to advertise her as a prostitute on the Internet, and the victim gave all the money she earned to Kilpatrick.
Authorities said Kilpatrick admitted during a recorded jail conversation that he maintained a relationship with the victim because she “put money in his pocket.”
