    A Dallas man has been sentenced to more than 27 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to using the Internet to prostitute a developmentally disabled teenage girl.

    A federal judge sentenced Kenneth Laray White on Monday in Dallas.

    The 26-year-old defendant pleaded guilty last March to using a facility of interstate commerce to aid a racketeering enterprise and a weapons count.

    His brother, 24-year-old Damion Kentrell White, awaits sentencing later this month after pleading guilty to a similar racketeering and weapons count.

    Trial is scheduled for next month for 31-year-old Mecose Mendale Shorter of Dallas, who also was charged in the case.

    Police rescued the girl from a Dallas motel in late July 2013, a few weeks after the Whites pressed her into service.
