Because New Jersey is serious about punishing crime:

TRENTON, N.J. — All sex-related charges against a 15-year-old girl accused of selling her 7-year-old stepsister to a group of men and boys for sex at a party have been dropped, prosecutors said Thursday.
The 15-year-old watched as the 7-year-old was raped by as many as seven men and boys in a vacant apartment near the girls’ Trenton home on March 28, police said. As many as a dozen people were at the party in a crime-plagued public housing complex a mile from the dome of the New Jersey statehouse, investigators said.
The teenage girl originally was charged with aggravated sexual assault, criminal restraint, terroristic threats, promoting prostitution and endangering the welfare of a minor . . . [T]he girl pleaded guilty in juvenile court to child endangerment and was sentenced to a year in juvenile detention . . .
