A Trenton man convicted of human trafficking and promoting prostitution in Cherry Hill was sentenced Wednesday to 20 years in state prison.
Brian Moore, 47, was found guilty of five counts of first-degree human trafficking and six counts of third-degree promoting prostitution in October.
He will be required to serve his entire 20-year sentence without parole and must pay a $25,000 fine, according to a statement from the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.
Moore was arrested by Cherry Hill Police in a March 2014 sting at the Inn of the Dove, where he had been housing the women. Testimony during the case revealed that Moore had been leveraging the addictions of his victims to keep them working as prostitutes. He advertised their services on Backpage.com, and arranged encounters in hourly motels.
Prostitution cases are one reason that Cherry Hill has made redeveloping its hourly motels a priority. As one such example: the America’s Best Value Inn on Route 70 had racked up some 4,000 calls for service from police since 2013.
