A Chicago dentist is sentenced to three years in prison for supporting a nationwide prostitution ring. Back in May, Dr. Gary Kimmel pleaded guilty to one count of money laundering for taking part in the ring.

In a plea agreement with prosecutors, Kimmel admitted to providing the ring with luxury vehicles, apartments in Marina City and dental work in exchange for more than $370,000.

Three men who ran the operation have already been sentenced. The ring operated in Chicago, Denver and Honolulu.
