Man accused of pimping soldier sentenced to prison

Following a plea deal in which he copped to one charge of transportation for illegal sexual activity, the man accused of sex trafficking a Fort Bragg, North Carolina, soldier reported for his two-and-a-half-year prison sentence Wednesday, according to court documents.

Jibri Quandel Thomas pleaded guilty June 8 to one of three federal charges of promoting prostitution, on top of North Carolina state charges that were dropped earlier this year.

Court documents filed at the time of his January arrest mentioned the Fort Bragg soldier, a 19-year-old woman who lived in the barracks at the time, as one of the women who worked for him.

A sentencing document shows Thomas was due to receive a full mental health evaluation and treatment before transfer to a North Carolina prison near his Fayetteville home.

He was sentenced to 30 months behind bars and another five years' probation.
