MOSCOW, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- A Russian man convicted of kidnapping, enslaving and raping two teenage girls for nearly four years has been sentenced to 17 years in prison, a report said.

Factory worker Victor Mokhov, 54, was arrested when one of the sex slaves passed a written plea for help to a young woman who had rented a room in Mokhov's house in Ryazan, Russia, MosNews.com reported.

The girls were 14 and 17 years old when they were drugged at a local club and kidnapped in September 2000.

When they were freed in May 2004, one of the girls reportedly was pregnant and had given birth twice while in captivity, the report said.
