    The U.S. attorney's office in New Hampshire says it has wrapped up prosecution of four greater Boston area men in connection with an interstate sex trafficking plot involving a minor being prostituted at a Salem, New Hampshire, motel.

    Authorities say the girl was 15 when federal and local officials made the first arrests at the motel in February 2014.

    They say 21-year-old Andy Pena of Jamaica Plain and 25-year-old Hansel German of Boston have been sentenced to eight years in prison. Enoc Ayuso of Dorchester was sentenced to five years for his role in the conspiracy and Rafael Reyes will be sentenced next week.

    Authorities said Thursday that clients were solicited through the online classified advertising site Backpage.com.

    Officials say the victim faces a "long and painful" healing process.
