PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - A former corrections officer from Oakland County has been sentenced to 40 to 60 years in prison for sexually abusing his teenage daughter and encouraging her to advertise as an escort online.
An Oakland County jury on Tuesday found 48-year-old William Pattison of Milford guilty of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and pandering.
The daughter, now 27, tells police the abuse started in the eighth grade. She says Pattison suggested she become a prostitute when she became old enough.
The Detroit News reports Pattison helped set up a Web site and would pick up the money she earned.
The Oakland Press reports Milford police began investigating Pattison in 2006, when another relative came forward with rape allegations.
Pattison's attorney said he plans to appeal.
