A Philadelphia man was sentenced on Monday, June 6, 2022, to 17 to 40 years in state prison for sex trafficking of a 15-year-old girl in Bensalem.
Andrew Hall, 29, pleaded guilty on February 28 to two dozen offenses, including felony counts of human trafficking of a minor, statutory sexual assault of a minor, promoting prostitution of a minor, criminal use of a communications facility, unlawful contact with a minor, sexual exploitation of children, photographing child sex acts and endangering the welfare of a child.
Investigators say Hall advertised sex with the girl at hotels in Philadelphia and Bensalem. He also had a sexual relationship with the girl and admitted to investigators that he knew she was 15.
Prior to sentencing Chief Deputy District Attorney Kristin M. McElroy told President Judge Wallace H. Bateman Jr. that since his arrest in August 2020, Hall has had six misconducts in the Bucks County Correctional Facility, violated orders of having contact with the victim and has continued making phone calls or attempted to make phone calls after his phone privileges were suspended.
