Man sentenced for sex and drug trafficking in Bismarck

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A California man has been sentenced in federal court in North Dakota to more than six years in prison on sex trafficking and drug trafficking charges.

Authorities say 35-year-old Montay Knight, of Indio, California, came to North Dakota early last year to sell drugs, and also instructed a woman to come from California to Bismarck for the purpose of prostitution.

He was arrested when the woman called police from her hotel room to report that Knight had assaulted and threatened her. Police also seized $4,000 in cash.

U.S. Attorney Chris Myers says Knight was recently sentenced to six years and seven months in federal prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release.
