COUNCIL BLUFFS (KWWL) -- An Omaha couple have been sent to prison after pleading guilty to a sex-trafficking conspiracy.  32-year-old Merrideth Crane-Horton was sentenced to 17 years in federal prison. Her husband, 35-year-old Edwin "Nate" Horton, was given more than 14 years.  Prosecutors say the couple and 2 others pleaded guilty last year to a charge stemming from sex trafficking in Omaha and across the Missouri River in Council Bluffs.  Investigators say the four ran the ring from August 2007 to June 2010.  Prostitutes included a teenage girl.
