32-year-old Dwane Washington of Memphis, Tennessee was convicted of prostituting a 14-year-old girl on Backpage. The pair was arrested in Richmond, Virginia this past April.
The girl was a runaway from Maryland who met up with Washington. She testified that Washington beat her and choked her on several occasions. She also testified that they had sex (child rape) on several occasions. Washington kept all the money that the girl made across several states.
Washington is only facing a minimum of 10 years behind bars.
Meanwhile Backpage continues counting its money made off of girls like Washington’s victim.
