Greeley Man Convicted of Child Sex Trafficking
A Greeley man has been found guilty of forcing girls into sexual servitude and child prostitution.
According to the Denver Post, 33-year-old Paul Burman was convicted by a jury of 32 charges of pimping out girls throughout Northern Colorado and into Nebraska. A Greeley police affidavit says he would find girls on Facebook, offer them a chance to make money, and turn them into his prostitutes.
Weld District Attorney Michael Rourke says crimes like this are not tolerated.
"This prosecution shows that human trafficking is not simply a big city problem, but unfortunately is a plague which is permeating all of our communities," said Rourke.
Burman will be sentenced on October 7.
