Trio of Backpage child traffickers to get sweetheart deal with no jail time

Trio of Backpage child traffickers to get sweetheart deal with no jail time
Brandi Beauchamp, Ashley Breedlove, Ciera Beauchamp

I originally posted about Brandi Beauchamp, Ashley Breedlove, and Ciera Beauchamp here. Ciera Beauchamp was the legal guardian of a 17-year-old girl who she allegedly prostituted on Backpage. Beuchamp’s sister, Brandi, and her girlfriend Breedlove, are said to have quit their jobs just so they could all collect money from this girl. The victim is said to even have contracted an STI thanks to her ‘guardian’ turning her out on Backpage.

You would think that child traffickers and child abusers like that would have the book thrown at them, but it’s not so. The prosecution has offered them a deal where they will see no jail time if they plead guilty to promoting prostitution. The most they’re looking at is two years of house arrest.

What kind of message does this send when three women were making money off of one 17-year-old girl who was forced to be violated by strangers for money? For that matter what message does that send to the victim where the suspects will only receive ankle bracelets for all the abuse she endured? This isn’t justice, it’s a mockery of what this girl had to withstand. The even sadder part is that this is what Backpage has wrought. There are multitudes of girls just like this still being turned out on Backpage and the legal system hardly seems to care.

Just because the head honchos of Backpage are facing criminal charges, that doesn’t mean that the problems have gone away. For example, in Indianapolis, three women are accused of prostituting a 17-year-old on Backpage.

24-year-old Ciera Beauchamp was the legal guardian of the 17-year-old girl she is accused of prostituting on Backpage. Beauchamp also lived with her sister, Brandi Beauchamp, and her girlfriend, Ashley Breedlove. All three women are accused of using the money the victim made to pay their own bills. Breedlove and Brandi Beauchamp even allegedly quit their jobs just so they could collect the money from the victim. The victim is also said to have contracted an STI from one of the johns.

I know I’m perpetually repeating myself, but I’ll keep banging this drum until there’s no longer a need to. This is what Backpage is defending as not only free speech but a solution to child prostitution and human trafficking. Prostituting a 17-year-old girl so leeches of society don’t have to work real jobs is neither a solution nor is it even remotely free speech.
