On Friday, New Hampshire sports reporter Kevin Provencher pleaded guilty to running a prostitution business in Massachusetts.
According to the Associated Press, Provencher was sentenced to state prison on two counts of "deriving support from a prostitute, two counts of procuring a person into prostitution, two counts of solicitation for prostitution and one count of witness intimidation." On top of that, he was fined $5,000 and placed on one-year probation.
Provencher had worked for the New Hampshire Union Leader for 23 years and won four New Hampshire Sportswriter of the Year awards from the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.
The 52-year-old created a website disguised as an "escort service" and utilized Craiglist, as well as other websites, to solicit women for his prostitution business. He received $400 a day from one of his prostitutes, according to gawker.com.
