Des Moines police find missing teen during prostitution sting:

Police in Des Moines, Iowa discovered that a 16-year-old runaway girl from Oregon was allegedly being pimped out on the Village Voice Media-owned backpage.com. Arrested for this act was 22-year-old Atlantis Carter of Waukegan, Illinois and 24-year-old Erika Hart of Honolulu, Hawaii.

While I’m glad that a 16-year-old girl was hopefully rescued from this kind of life I don’t believe she should have been arrested. She is a victim in all this, she is not a criminal.

As an aside, I’m sure Backpage’s mouthpiece Liz McDougall is horrified about this as she cashes her huge paychecks from VVM.
