CINCINNATI (AP) -- A northwest Ohio man serving 30 years in prison for forcing a 16-year-old girl into prostitution has lost his bid to have his conviction thrown out or get a more lenient sentence.
A three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati rejected Anthony Willoughby's arguments that his trial was unfair and his sentence unreasonably long.
The judges say evidence against the Toledo man was "overwhelming."
Willoughby's attorney, Angela Hayden, says she doesn't know whether she'll appeal the decision. She declined to comment further.
Willoughby was convicted in December 2011 of trafficking a 16-year-old girl who had run away from her foster home. The girl testified that the 40-year-old Willoughby forced her to have sex with him and had pimped her out to at least three men.
