U.S. sports reporter jailed for running prostitution ring

A veteran New Hampshire sports reporter pleaded guilty Friday to running a prostitution business in Massachusetts featuring women who had auditioned for him and to intimidating a witness in an effort to prevent her from testifying against him. Kevin Provencher was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in state prison. He was also fined $5,000 and placed on probation for one year after his release. Provencher worked for the New Hampshire Union Leader for 23 years. He has won four New Hampshire Sportswriter of the Year awards from the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.
