North Carolina man sentenced in Arundel sex trafficking case

A 31-year-old North Carolina man was sentenced to 46 months in prison Friday following a plea agreement on charges of sex trafficking in Anne Arundel County. County police had apprehended the man, Michael Darnell Boswell Jr., in June 2013 near the Baltimore-Washington International Airport based on information from an undercover detective.

Prosecutors had alleged that Boswell drove at least two women around Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina to engage in sex acts. According to a press release from the U.S, Attorney's Office, Boswell first had the women host private parties and dances, then sex work soon followed.

At the time of his arrest, Boswell had already been arrested twice for sex trafficking, according to the release.

U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz ordered three years of supervision following Boswell's release. Boswell must also register as a sex offender at his school, place of work and in his community.
