Three Houston men have been sentenced to eight-year prison terms in a sex trafficking ring in which a victim was branded with a panther image to mark her as property.

Prosecutors in Houston say 42-year-old Andre McDaniels, 30-year-old Jamine Lake and 38-year-old Ronnie Presley were sentenced Monday after earlier pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit sex trafficking. All three were also convicted of transportation, coercion and enticement counts related to sex businesses often disguised as modeling studios and health spas.

McDaniels was also convicted of nine counts of witness tampering. McDaniels faces up to life in prison when he’s sentenced in March.

Prosecutors say one victim testified about having a gun put in her mouth and being branded on her back with a black panther image.
