Pair charged in sex trafficking:

That dashing gentleman is 25-year-old Michael Neloms. He was arrested in Sedgwick County, Kansas for allegedly prostituting a 15-year-old girl on the Village Voice Media owned backpage.com. The girl was advertised as being 19.

According to the article from The Wichita Eagle, Neloms was arrested two weeks ago yet the ad for the girl was still listed on backpage as of yesterday. I wonder why backpage’s crack safeguards hasn’t didn’t remove the ad? It makes me wonder how exactly they determine if a girl in an ad is too young. I would guess the only thing they’re doing is to see if a trafficker is stupid enough to list the girl as underage.
