Man convicted in New Orleans of child sex trafficking

A Florida man has been convicted by a federal jury in New Orleans of child sex trafficking charges.

Thirty-year-old Benson December Coriolant, of Orlando, Fla., faces a maximum sentence of life in prison following his convictions Thursday.

Prosecutors say Coriolant recruited a 14-year-old girl to work for him as a prostitute in Florida and Louisiana. He allegedly plied her with alcohol and drugs to control her behavior.

Coriolant is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 20.
