ST. CHARLES COUNTY • An O'Fallon, Mo., man was sentenced to five years in prison for his role in prostituting a teenage girl out of a St. Peters hotel room.
Demond L. Day, 35, of the 700 block of Hyde Drive, pleaded guilty on April 3 and was sentenced for promoting prostitution, marijuana possession, and marijuana distribution.
Also charged is Tiffany L. Piper, 23, of St. Peters. She faces charges of sexual trafficking and marijuana distribution.
Day was sentenced in St. Charles Circuit Court by Circuit Court Judge Nancy Schneider. Piper's charges are pending.
