BISMARCK, North Dakota — A Milwaukee man accused of bringing women to North Dakota's oil patch and forcing them into prostitution has pleaded guilty in federal court.

Thirty-two-year-old Levell Durr reached a plea deal with prosecutors that calls for him to spend 21 months in prison, or a little less than two years. Judge Daniel Hovland scheduled sentencing for Jan. 16.

Durr pleaded guilty to a charge of coercion and enticement. He admitted to convincing women to come to North Dakota and to placing ads for their services, though he said he did not force the women.

Durr was arrested in Bismarck in June. He had been living in Minot.
