A former Baltimore firefighter was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for running a brothel and bringing women - including a 16-year-old girl - from around the country to Baltimore so he could hire them out as prostitutes. Jamar Simmons, 31, ran a brothel with Franklin Coit, 35, and preyed on poor, homeless or otherwise vulnerable women, according to the U.S. attorney's office. Simmons pleaded guilty in September to a federal sex trafficking charge; Coit had pleaded guilty to the same charge a month earlier.

A former Baltimore firefighter pleaded guilty Friday to a federal sex trafficking charge for his part in running a brothel that pimped out a 16-year-old girl and other women. Jamar Simmons and Franklin Coit ran brothels at two locations in Baltimore between 2009 and 2012 - the first in Reservoir Hill and later at a warehouse in Carrollton Ridge - and advertised for women to come to work for them as escorts or exotic dancers. Coit pleaded guilty to the same charge in August. "Many of the women recruited by Simmons and Coit were in financial distress, had no place to live, or were otherwise unusually vulnerable," Simmons' plea agreement said.

In March 2012, Simmons found a woman online, identified in the indictment only as C.F., and with Coit arranged for her to be brought from South Dakota to work as a prostitute, prosecutors allege.

A look back The Terps ended a three-game losing streak, capped by Sunday's 86-63 drubbing at Duke, with a 70-49 victory over Clemson on Tuesday. It marked Maryland's 13th straight victory over the Tigers, headed for another last-place finish. A look ahead Maryland most likely needs to win two of its last three games to keep its NCAA tournament hopes alive. That means the Terps probably must beat visiting Wake Forest tomorrow. By the numbers Maryland senior center Jamar Smith and sophomore forward Nik Caner-Medley are fading at the wrong time.
