WORCESTER – Fabian Beltran was sentenced to 6 to 8 years in state prison today after a Worcester Superior Court jury found him guilty of human trafficking and deriving support from a prostitute, according to the Office of the Worcester County District Attorney.
Judge Daniel M. Wrenn imposed a sentence of 6 to 8 years for human trafficking and 4 to 5 years for deriving support from a prostitute. The sentences are to be served concurrently. Assistant District Attorney Timothy A. Westerman recommended concurrent sentences of 8 to 10 years and 4 to 5 years.
Mr. Beltran’s attorney asked for concurrent sentences of 5 years to 5 years and a day and 2 years to 2 years and a day.
The jury found Mr. Beltran, 25, guilty after deliberating for about two hours. His co-defendant, Lewis Jennings, 26, was found not guilty of the same charges.
The victim testified that in 2016 Mr. Beltran took advantage of her drug addiction and profited from her acts of prostitution. In return, he supplied her with heroin.
ADA Susan Oftring also prosecuted the case. The Worcester Police Gang Unit and WPD Detective Bureau investigated with the assistance of the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office.
