A Lancaster man recently pleaded guilty to human trafficking regarding an East Lampeter Township sting operation last year.

Tysheem R. Williams, 34, pleaded guilty to trafficking, promoting prostitution and related charges.

In exchange for the plea, Williams will serve 2 to 6 years in prison, followed by 4 years on probation, in accordance with an agreement arranged by Assistant District Attorney Karen Mansfield.

Lancaster County President Judge Dennis Reinaker accepted the plea and ordered sentence.
