35-year-old O.F. was convicted on several felony charges connected to pandering and other suspected offenses. He was recently sentenced by a Clark County District Court judge. O.F. was arrested in September of last year after an incident where he allegedly held a woman against her will who was working for him as a prostitute. Prosecutors on the case said that he used threats and physical force to get young women to work for him as prostitutes. In the particular incident in September, O.F. was accused of dragging a woman away that had tried to escape from him at a location in a Las Vegas neighborhood. He was subsequently arrested and charged with living off the earnings of a prostitute, pandering, assault, battery and kidnapping. The man was convicted of the charges but stated he plans to appeal. The judge handed down a severe sentence which included a 15-years-to-life prison sentence. O.F. said that the prosecutors were "malicious and overaggressive" in pursuing a conviction. The judge replied that the defendant had no one to blame but himself and his own arrogance.
