A Chicago man was sentenced to 50 years for running a child prostitution ring.

Prosecutors sought a long sentence for Datqunn Sawyer, 32. They say he forced girls as young as 12 into prostitution, branding them with tattoos and advertising the service on the internet.

Many of the victims were homeless, runaways or mentally ill, prosecutors said.
