2nd half of STL couple sentenced for backpage child trafficking


Minneapolis woman gets prison time for prostituting teen:

I originally posted about Maurice Dontae Alexander and Latoshia Norris here and here. They were the pair that prostituted a 16-year-old girl on the Village Voice Media-owned backpage.com.

The pair took the girl from St. Louis to Des Moines, Kansas City, and Indianapolis.

For transporting the girl across several state lines for the purposes of prostitution Alexander only got 6 years. Last week Norris was sentenced to almost the same amount. She was sentenced to 51 months.

Again, like I need to say it, this sentence is a joke. Most of these street scum can do six years standing on their head. This is far from a deterrent to keep the traffickers from selling children.

When will lawmakers wake up to the fact that children are being sold online and make the sentences really commensurate for the crime committed?

And also once again Backpage doesn’t care about these kids. They only care about the money they make. How come no one is trying to #Occupy the offices of VVM?
