ATLANTA -- A convicted sex offender is heading back to prison after being found guilty of trafficking.

Terrance "Scooby" Anderson, 42, was sentenced in federal court to 25 years in prison followed by seven years of supervised released. He must also pay nearly $150,000 in restitution to his victims.

Anderson pleaded guilty to similar charges in August 2001 and served seven years in federal prison.

"Today's sentencing removes a dangerous individual from our streets who has repeatedly shown a callous disregard for the basic human rights of others," Atlanta-based FBI Acting Special Agent in Charge Ricky Maxwell said in a statement.

Prosecutors argued that from February 2008 to December 2011, Anderson ran a prostitution ring that advertised its services on websites like Backpage, Craigslist and Eros. He forced a 17-year-old girl to earn at least $1,000 a day performing sex acts in multiple states, and also transported two women from Georgia to Virginia to have sex for money.

Anderson, of Ellenwood, pleaded guilty in July to one count of sex trafficking of a minor and two counts of transporting adults across state lines for prostitution.
