A former state trooper is headed to prison for at least 6 years.

A judge sentenced Michael Steele Tuesday after denying his request for probation or community service.

Last month the 30-year-old pleaded guilty to 10 charges.

Prosecutors claim Steele pulled over at least three Hispanic women while on duty.

He touched, kissed or fondled the women and threatened to have them deported if they reported him.
