I originally posted about Megan Hayes here. Along with her boyfriend, Brandon Quincy Thompson, the pair from Tea, South Dakota have been federally charged with pimping out underage girls on the Village Voice Media-owned classified site Backpage. The pair is looking at life sentences for their alleged acts.
So it kind of puzzles me why Hayes was released into the custody of her father in Davenport, Iowa.
Hayes has no prior criminal history, and her father, brother and a neighbor from Tea testified that Hayes was a shy, reliable person who prefers staying home with pets to leaving the house.
I’m sorry but shy and reliable people don’t participate in child prostitution rings. I wouldn’t be surprised if she bolted while out on release.
