Jazmine And Tatiana Pimped Out Their Classmates - Two 16 Year Old Girls Arrested On Child Prostitution Charges
Phoenix, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) -- Two 16-year-old girls have been arrested on child prostitution charges after they allegedly recruited girls as young as 14 to work as prostitutes.
According to Phoenix Police, Jazmine Finley and Tatiana Tye were arrested earlier this month on child prostitution charges after a nearly five-month investigation. The investigation was conducted during weekend prostitution sweeps that netted more than 50 prostitution, pandering and drug-related arrests.
Investigators believe Finley and Tye were instrumental in recruiting at least 5 girls (aged 14 to 17) to work as prostitutes.
The girls were reportedly responsible for recruiting, teaching and collecting money from the girls who worked under them. They also rented a Phoenix apartment to serve as a brothel for teen sex services.
Finley was arrested on 9 counts of child prostitution, two counts of receiving earnings of a prostitute and one count of pandering. Tye was arrested on one charge of prostitution and three counts of pandering.
Both teens have been charged as adults.
