A Hollis man already serving time for promoting prostitution last week pleaded guilty to sex trafficking for forcing a 15-year-old girl work for him as a prostitute year a two-month period in 2016.

Corey Hannah, 34, pleaded guilty on July 23 before Queens Supreme Court Justice Peter Vallone Jr. according to a statement issued by the Queens District Attorney’s Office. He is facing a term of four-and-a-half to nine years in prison when he is sentenced on Aug. 15.

Hannah was convicted last year for forcing a 21-year-old woman into prostitution as well.

“Prostitution is not a victimless crime. This defendant not once — but twice — forced two individuals to trade sex for cash in order to enrich himself,” Acting Queens District Attorney John Ryan said. “The victims — a teenager and a young woman — were physically and mentally intimidated and abused. The defendant is now going to prison for his criminal conduct.”

Ryan’s statement said Hannah’s new sentence will run concurrently with the three-and-a-half to seven year sentence he already is serving.
