An Ohio woman has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for trying to force her 17-year-old daughter into prostitution. Sheriff's deputies said that they found Rachel White, 39, and a man prostituting the teenager at a hotel in April. Judge A.J. Wagner gave White the maximum sentence to her guilty plea, calling her actions "disgusting." The man, Michael Melvin, was sentenced to a year in prison back in July.
