WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

A Wichita man has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for sex trafficking of a woman and teenage girl. 

U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said Johnell Carter pleaded guilty in December to two counts of sex trafficking. He was sentenced Monday. 

Carter admitted he used physical force including punching and biting to make an 18-year-old woman have sex for money at Wichita hotels. Carter also admitted recruiting a 15-year-old to perform commercial sex acts at Wichita hotels.

He advertised services online.

McAllister commended the FBI, the Wichita Police Department, the Exploited and Missing Child Unit (EMCU) and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.

    "People are going to be a lot safer with that light flashing up there," said Dean Berg about plans to install a flashing light above the stop signs on 183rd St at MacArthur Road. After another serious accident at the intersection the county is now trying something different to warn drivers about an upcoming stop sign, though county engineers say the real problem is with distracted drivers, not signage.
