In Gaithersburg, Maryland 36-year-old Duane Mason was sentenced to 10 years behind bars for prostituting a 15-year-old girl on the Village Voice Media-owned backpage.com.
Not only did Mason turn out the runaway girl on Backpage, including posting explicit pictures of the girl on the website, he turned her out in the parking lot of a Gaithersburg Toys R Us. Something tells me that in Mason’s dealings with the johns the girl’s age was probably not kept a secret.
Again Village Voice Media, you’re doing a real bang-up job of keeping child prostitutes off your site. If you were doing any better of a job, toddlers would be turned out on your site.
