The U.S. attorney's office in Memphis says Victoria Wallace was sentenced Friday by Senior U.S. District Judge Jon McCalla.

Testimony at Wallace's sentencing hearing showed that Wallace was a high-ranking member of the Piru Street gang, using force and threats of force to control her victims

A juvenile testified that Wallace drove her and three other minors to New Orleans for the purpose of having them prostitute. Wallace also put minors to work in prostitution in Memphis.

The juvenile testified that Wallace kept the money her victims made and threatened them if they refused to work.

Wallace pleaded guilty in January to a child sex trafficking conspiracy charge.
