HOUSTON - A Houston man has been sentenced to more than nine years in prison in a prostitution case involving hotels and online advertisements.

A federal judge in Houston on Thursday sentenced 30-year-old Jerald Bland. Bland in January pleaded guilty to transportation of a woman for commercial sex.

Prosecutors say Bland in 2010 transported the woman to Beaumont and to Louisiana. Investigators used online ads and corresponding hotel records in several Louisiana cities, including New Orleans, Lake Charles, Lafayette and Baton Rouge.

Several hotel employees recognized Bland and the woman as guests.

Prosecutors say Bland kept all the money the woman earned. Further details on her were not immediately released.
