Nevada man pleads guilty to lower charge in prostitution case in North Dakota


BISMARCK, North Dakota — A Nevada man arrested during an anti-human trafficking investigation in North Dakota has pleaded guilty to a lower charge.

KXMB-TV (http://bit.ly/1FdeKOn ) reports Steven Ezeofor has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of promoting prostitution. He has been ordered to spend 60 days in jail.

Ezeofor was arrested in December at a Bismarck motel where he and a woman were staying. The woman told police she was a prostitute. Authorities say Ezeofor had over $13,000 with him and the woman had $3.

Ezeofor, of Carson City, Nevada, originally faced a human trafficking charge.

The incident was uncovered by police who say they found an advertisement on a website frequented by human traffickers and prostitutes.

Authorities say Ezeofor will serve the 60-day sentence at the same time he is in jail for a separate crime.
