(UNDATED) - A Kentucky man has been given ten years in prison after pleading guilty to charges of human trafficking in a case that involved teenage girls from Evansville.

According to police, 32-year-old Jathar William, also know as "Bolder," admitted to recruiting two minors for commercial sex acts starting in March of 2014.

Court documents say he met the first girl through a website called "Tagged". The website claims "Tagged" makes it easy to meet and socialize with new people through games, shared interests, friend suggestions, browsing profiles, and much more. After the encounter, the then 15-year-old girl he met connected him to another 17-year-old female.

According to police William picked up the girls in Evansville and drove them across state lines to Henderson, KY., where he set up sexual encounters with other men for money.
