Former state senator sentenced to 15 years for child sex trafficking

by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

On Monday, the former Republican senator from Oklahoma, Ralph Shortley, was sentenced to 15 years in prison on child sex trafficking charges (he pleaded guilty in November in exchange for prosecutors dropping all child pornography charges). After he gets out of prison, he’ll still have another decade on probation, something he will have to go through alone as his wife divorced him.

Shortley, 36, resigned from the state Senate in March of 2017 weeks after police found him in the local Super 8 motel with the teenager. He had served just two terms.
