A Luzerne County man pleads guilty to conspiring with others to recruit, harbor and transport minor females to engage in commercial sex acts for money in Dauphin and Luzerne counties during the summer of 2013.

Gregory Boone, 30, of Pittston, admitted to taking part in a scheme to use minor girls to engage in prostitution. Boone and his co-conspirators used cell phones to produce and transmit photographs of the girls. Those photos were posted on a website promoting prostitution activities in motels in the Harrisburg area and Luzerne County.

A federal grand jury indicted Boone in December 2013.  He faces a maximum of sentence of life in prison and a $250,000 fine. His sentencing will be scheduled at a later date.
