Omaha Man Sentenced To Prison For Sex Trafficking Minor

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha man who pleaded guilty earlier this year to a single count of sex trafficking of a minor has been sentenced to more than 20 years in federal prison.

Glenn Whitney, 26, was sentenced Wednesday in Omaha’s federal court to 250 months in prison, federal prosecutors for Nebraska said in a news release. There is no parole in the federal system.

In exchange for his plea, prosecutors dropped several other counts of sex trafficking and a conspiracy count. Federal agents uncovered the crime last year after an Omaha foster child was reported missing, prosecutors said.

The investigation showed Whitney was trafficking the 16-year-old victim for money, including providing hotel rooms, advertising and transportation for the girl to have sex with men, according to court documents. Officials said Whitney knew the girl was under 18.
