2 sentenced in wrestler's sex ring

ATLANTA - Two people were sentenced Thursday for taking part in a sex trafficking ring run by former professional wrestler 'Hardbody' Harrison Norris.

Two others were sentenced for lying to investigators in the case.

U.S. District Judge Jack T. Camp sentenced Cedric Jackson, 41, of Atlanta to five years in prison and Aimee Allen, 37, formerly of Cartersville and now of Clarence, N.Y., to two years and 10 months for conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking.

Leslie Smith, 22, of Macon and Michell Achuff, 25, of Lafayette, Tenn., who admitted that they provided false information to protect Norris, each received three years of probation.

Norris, who claimed he just ran training camp for women to become professional wrestlers, was convicted by a federal jury on 24 counts related to sex trafficking, peonage, forced labor and witness tampering. His sentencing is scheduled for April 1
