A 28-year-old accused of multiple human trafficking charges involving three women and an underage teenage girl in Anaheim struck a plea deal Friday and was sentenced to 11 years and four months in prison.

Human trafficking and human trafficking and pimping and pandering of a victim younger than 16 were dropped while Clifford Tyrone Lawrence admitted to four felony counts of pimping and a felony count of pandering, according to court records.

A child abuse and endangerment misdemeanor count was also dropped, but Lawrence pled guilty to a misdemeanor count of vandalism for defacing the car window of one of the prostitutes.

If convicted at trial of the original charges, Lawrence could have faced up to 32 years in prison.
