Sentencing has been handed down for a Grand Forks man surrounding the first human-trafficking charges in Grand Forks County history.

27-year-old Joshua Harry faced a sentence of life in prison without parole- the state's stiffest sentence, for pimping a 17-year-old girl. After flip-flopping on a plea deal, Harry pleaded guilty at the last minute to a the lesser charge of promoting prostitution. He will now spend 2 1/2 years in prison.
