The man involved in the human trafficking of three adults and a minor was sentenced Thursday to three years on probation.

Carl Lewis served 465 days in prison.

Lewis was booked into the Kern County Jail for human trafficking of an adult and human trafficking of a minor. The three females were released without charges.
