Runaway teens pimped out on craigslist

Police: Runaway NW teens forced into selling sex on Craigslist:

Here’s some more of those victims that prostitution supposedly doesn’t have…

The case of a runaway Beaverton girl led to a string of arrests in an Internet prostitution investigation over the past three months.

The case netted several arrests and runaway teens from the Northwest between May and the end of August, according to Beaverton Police.

Detectives following the report in May of a runaway 15-year-old from Beaverton were led to Los Angeles, where they found the missing girl with 25-year-old Deandre Travon Green of Aloha. Investigators said Green had forced the girl into prostitution through the L.A. Craigslist Web site.

Information developed in the case led officers to the Extended Stay Hotel on Eider Ct. in August. There they found a 21-year-old woman and a 16-year-old reported runaway from Seattle, both were charged with prostitution, police said.

A week later, detectives found two girls reported as runaways from Portland and Gresham. The 15- and 17- year-old girls were arrested along with 22-year-old Quentin G. Lewis, who was charged with possession of crack and outstanding warrants.

But I’m sure the 15-17-year-olds wanted to be prostitutes right?

Give me a break.
