A Houston man was sentenced to 10 years behind bars on Thursday for helping his friend get a teenager into prostitution.

27-year-old Trevin Rounds was found guilty earlier this month of having child porn and coercion of a minor.

Rounds and his friend Brian Phea brought the girl to Odessa.

The 14-year-old girl was advertised for sex on the Internet and was forced into prostitution.

Deputies in Eden, Texas, uncovered what was going on when the girl and rounds were pulled over for a traffic stop.

They later also found a tape of rounds having sex with a minor.

His friend, Brian Phea, was sentenced to 26 years behind bars.
