A habitual criminal is sentenced to a lengthy prison sentence for sex trafficking a girl under 16 years old.

Anthony Swindle is sentenced to 180 years - life in prison in Douglas County district court.  A jury convicted him on 2 counts of sexual assault of a minor and 2 counts of sex trafficking.  With "Goodtime" he'll be eligible for parole in 115 years.

In 2015, Swindle was arrested for sex trafficking a 15 year old girl at a motel near the I-680 exit on W. Maple Rd.  He also sex trafficked a 21-year-old girl at a home near 114th & Pacific Streets.  One victim said he imprisoned her, beat, and strangled her if she tried to keep any money.


Swindle will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.  He refused to sign the paperwork in court on Monday.
