ST. CLOUD -- A Brooklyn Park man has been sentenced in a St. Cloud sex trafficking case. The Stearns County Attorney's Office says 39-year-old Terrell Fields was sentenced to just under 14 years in prison today (Thursday).

Fields was charged after an investigation into sex trafficking and prostitution in the St. Cloud area last fall. He pleaded guilty just days before his trial was to begin.

The Central Minnesota Sex Trafficking Task Force had learned of a woman who was actively being trafficked as a prostitute. Through that investigation, police discovered Fields was actively recruiting and promoting prostitution.
