You may have read the name Latasha McFarland on this site before. She was the st. Louis woman accused of prostituting a 14-year-old neighbor girl on the Village Voice owned backpage.com. This was the story in which the 14-year-old victim has filed a lawsuit against backpage.
After pleading guilty to prostitution charges McFarland was sentenced to 5 years in federal prison. She sobbed when the sentence was read but I bet she had no tears when she sent someone else’s daughter to have sex with child rapists.
McFarland only got 5 years because of a plea deal. Prosecutors dropped a charge of trafficking a minor. They should have dropped the prostitution charge and sentenced her for trafficking. Again my tax dollars shouldn’t be going towards making deals with child traffickers. They should be going towards keeping them behind bars as long as possible.
