A federal judge has sentenced a northeast Ohio man to life in prison for prostituting four young women whom he kept addicted to drugs.

A jury convicted Jeremy Mack of Elyria in February on charges that included conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, sex trafficking of a minor and drug trafficking.

A message was left with Mack's attorney following the sentence handed down Thursday by Akron federal judge Sara Lioi.

An FBI and Elyria police investigation found that the 38-year-old Mack and an Avon Lake woman worked together for months to keep the young women addicted to drugs and would make them work as prostitutes in exchange for drugs.
