      (WJLA) - A Capitol Heights man has been sentenced to over 21 years in prison for child sex trafficking.

      According to his plea agreement, Daniel "Snoop" Burton, 30, recruited a 13-year-old girl in March 2008 to work as a prostitute. For about a{}month, Burton drove the victim to hotels, photographed her in lingerie, and advertised her on Craigslist for sexual services, prosecutors say.{}Burton kept all the money the victim earned. He also provided her with alcohol, marijuana, and ecstasy.

      Burton was arrested on April 8 after police noticed a Craigslist ad for the victim's sexual services.{}

      Following his release, Burton faces a lifetime of supervised release. He must also register as a sex offender.
