SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia man who prosecutors say operated a sex and drug trafficking business has been sentenced to serve more than three decades in prison.

Federal prosecutors said 50-year-old Anthony Wilson Jackson led a scheme to carry out sex trafficking across the country and shipped and distributed large quantities of marijuana around Savannah.

He was sentenced Thursday to serve 30 years and six months in prison after pleading guilty to numerous federal charges.
