Ralph Shortey, a senior member of Donald Trump’s primary campaign team in Oklahoma, has been handed a 15-year prison sentence after a scandal with 17-year-old male prostitute in his hotel room and revealing a child sex traffic case, in which Shortey pleaded guilty and for which, actually, he was sentenced. The politician will serve 10 more years of supervised probation after he’s released from prison, and was ordered to pay a fine at a later date that could be as much as $250,000.Court documents also revealed claims that Shortey sent videos of young boys and a “prepubescent girl” over email in October 2013. He was additionally alleged to have persuaded a minor to send him sexually explicit messages and intimate photos. Officials charged him in federal court with production of child pornography, child sex trafficking and two counts of transportation of child pornography. Shortey pleaded guilty to the child sex trafficking charge in November, in return for the other charges being dropped.
