I originally posted about Myrelle Lockett and Tyrelle Lockett from Dolton, Illinois here. At the time of their arrest last May they were 17-years-old and we’re charged with violently forcing underage girls into prostitution on the Village Voice Media-owned backpage.com.
Two weeks ago the pair pleaded guilty to the charges against them but the now 18-year-olds have only been sentenced to four years in jail. They forced underage girls with violence to have sex with strangers and then kept the money. They’ll be out when they’re 22.
That’s not justice. That’s a travesty.
