ATLANTA (AP) — Fulton County District Attorney's official say a man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for prostituting and sexually abusing two teenage girls.

Prosecutors say 34-year-old Derek Spencer became the last of three men to be sentenced in the case on Thursday. Spencer faced several charges, including human trafficking, statutory rape, pimping, pandering and sexual exploitation of a minor.

Authorities say Spencer approached two 14-year-old runaway girls in October 2012 and offered them a place to stay. Prosecutors say he and two other men began supplying the girls with drugs and arranged for them to meet with men at one of their houses or at local hotels.

Prosecutors say Hossein Sharifi has already been sentenced to five years and Kynne Shuler was sentenced to 25 years.
