A Vancouver man was sentenced to 185 days in jail in connection with accusations that he arranged the prostitution of a teenage girl in 2012.
In an agreement with prosecutors, Nicholas Darren Jay Moline, 20, pleaded guilty in Clark County Superior Court on Thursday to second-degree promoting sex abuse of a minor and gross misdemeanor communicating with a minor for immoral purposes. He will be required to register as a sex offender for 10 years, said Deputy Prosecutor Patrick Robinson.
Moline has already served his 185 days while his case was pending in court, Robinson said.
Vancouver police received a report Feb. 13, 2012, of a 17-year-old girl who claimed she had been prostituted.
The girl told police that she contacted Moline through Facebook and asked him to get her some drugs, according to a court affidavit. Moline allegedly arranged for her to have sex with a man who was willing to give her methamphetamine in exchange for a sexual favor.
The girl agreed to meet the dealer in a parking lot at Clark College, where she performed a sexual act on him in exchange for methamphetamine, according to court records.
