Teenage twin traffickers sentenced

The Lockett Twins

The Lockett Twins

Brothers Plead Guilty to Sex Trafficking:

I originally posted about Myrelle Lockett and Tyrelle Lockett from Dolton, Illinois here. At the time of their arrest last May they were 17-years-old and we’re charged with violently forcing underage girls into prostitution on the Village Voice Media owned backpage.com.

Two weeks ago the pair pleaded guilty to the charges against them but the now 18-year-olds have only been sentenced to four years in jail. They forced underage girls with violence to have sex with strangers and then kept the money. They’ll be out when they’re 22.

That’s not justice. That’s a travesty.

17-year-old twins pimp out teens on Backpage

Dolton teens accused of human trafficking:

If you thought the 18 and 19-year-old girls from Phoenix were the youngest Backpage human traffickers guess again.

Twin 17-year-old brothers, Myrelle Lockett and Tyrelle Lockett, of Dolton, Illinois have been arrested for forcing underage girls into prostitution on the Village Voice Media owned Backpage.com.

And once again Village Voice Media is not called on the carpet like craigslist is by either the media or politicians.
