WACO, TX — A Temple man was sentenced to more than 21 years in prison for sex trafficking two minors.

The Department of Justice says on August 6, 2019, 26-year-old Riheem "Phat" Rexdual Robinson plead guilty to two counts of sex trafficking of children.

By pleading guilty, Robinson admits that in April 2012, he recruited, enticed, harbored and transported a minor. Robinson then caused that minor to engage in commercial sex act for which he profited financially.

He also admitted to committing the same acts with a second minor in October 2016.

Robinson was sentenced Thursday to 260 months in federal prison. He was also sentenced to pay a $2,000 fine and be placed on supervised release for a period of 10 years after completing his prison term.
