    The article says she was finally able to escape when he was in the shower, but it doesn't say how long he had her. Unless I'm missing it.

    Poor thing.

    Prosecutors allege that Yancey developed a sexual relationship with the girl, then 15, in early July 2009, taking her to Bellevue without the consent of her foster parents. In the Puget Sound area, they checked in to several hotels, where he solicited her for prostitution on Internet sites.

    According to court papers, when johns called her for service, he told her what to say, keeping a black spiral notebook with notes. When johns arrived, Yancey would wait in a vehicle out front. Afterward, he’d forced the girl to give him the money.

    She made $1,000 while prostituting, which she gave over to Yancey, according to court papers.

    While in Bellevue, as she later told Vancouver police investigators, she tried to flee but he physically assaulted and choked her as she ran for the door.

    In late July, the two returned to his Vancouver apartment, when the girl ran away and alerted a local business for help, Clark County Deputy Prosecutor Anna Klein said

    Seems he had had her for a month. Poor child.

    No way it's enough -- just think, even if he does all 10 years, he'll only be 32yo when he gets out!!
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    I didn't see any charges under the Mann Act. I wonder why? He did take her across state lines with the intention to make money off her. How much more clear can it get?

    And he will probably just learn how to do it a better next time. Next time the poor girl may not ever get the chance to run away.

    I just can't get over the laws, the sentencing guidelines. I am sure someone will come along and say how remorseful he is, how changed. They will let him out in 5 years and we will see this guys name again. But it will probably be a murder charge next time.

    Not much of a comment, but to me, that "10" ought to have one more zero.
