31-year-old Brock Franklin just received one of the longest prison sentences in history. It was more than well deserved. Franklin is the worst of the worst. He deserves to serve every second he’ll spend behind bars.
From Denver Post:
CENTENNIAL, Colo. — A Colorado man convicted of running a prostitution ring involving children and young adults has been sentenced to 472 years in prison.
KUSA-TV reports that 31-year-old Brock Franklin was sentenced by Arapahoe County Judge Peter F. Michaelson on Tuesday.
Franklin was convicted Friday on 30 counts, including human trafficking of a minor and kidnapping.

“I can’t begin to even explain what he did to my life,” victim Brehannah Leary said in court.
“Reading it today, and speaking and actually saying how I felt, and him having hearing and have to sit there and listen and listen to me, that brought me so much joy and that’s why I came today,” she added.
The convict’s legal team asked for a 96-year sentence, but county officials and victim’s advocacy groups demanded he be put away permanently.
“A 400-year sentence sends a strong message across the country that we’re not going to tolerate this kind of violence to women and vulnerable populations,” said Colorado Attorney General’s Office spokesperson Janet Drake.

Franklin’s defense team originally asked for the minimum sentence of 96 years behind bars, but victims and prosecutors pushed for more.
“He deserves every single minute in those walls,” Leary told FOX 31.
What an animal.
