Florida Girls Pimped Out at 14

Posted on | April 19, 2014 | 11 Comments

Story Number One:

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office arrested 44 people in a prostitution sting that led them to a 14-year-old girl who deputies said was being sold for sex.
Investigators said Gregory Foster showed up to the sting with a 14-year-old girl he had kidnapped from Orange County. Detectives said Foster and the girl had been talking on Facebook and met at a gas station. . . .
Investigators said the young girl was to be Foster’s money maker. It was the girl’s first night out, deputies said. . . .
The sting, titled Operation Holler Back, lasted three days. Agents used websites like Craigslist and Backpage to arrange appointments for paid sex then met the suspects in a Lake County hotel.
Some of the 44 people arrested were alleged pimps, alleged prostitutes and alleged drivers, deputies said.
Foster is charged with kidnapping, human trafficking, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.

Story Number Two:

Three people from California have been arrested, accused of trafficking a 14-year-old from Orlando for prostitution.
Vincent Hudson, 44, who went by the alias “Goldie,” was arrested in addition to 22-year-old Patricia Poulson who went by “Moët Diamonds” and 20-year-old Jessica McCrary who went by “Amber Snow,” according to officials.
All three are from California.
The indictment said between Nov. 8 and Dec. 18 of last year, the three recruited the victim from Orlando, and then took the minor to Louisiana and California to engage in prostitution, officials said. . . .
Hudson was charged with conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of a minor, sex trafficking of a minor, transporting a minor to engage in prostitution, and two counts of commission of a felony offense involving a minor when required to register as a sex offender.
Poulson and McCrary are charged with conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of a minor.
If convicted, they each face as much as life in federal prison.

Now, these are two separate cases, but were reported on the same day by the same Orlando TV station. If 14-year-olds are being trafficked so routinely that you get this kind of coincidence, how many 14-year-olds are being pimped out in America?

    I glanced through both stories. I note there is no reference to these girls being missing. Perhaps their parents or guardians indeed filed a missing person report, but one would think that would be mentioned. All of that leads to any number of questions, the answers to which are probably as disturbing as the reported case.

    Story 1: 14 yo victim from Orange County (presumably Florida), 44 suspects presumably from Florida

    Story 2: 14 yo victim from Orlando (which is in Orange County, Florida), 3 suspects from California

    The victim in both cases looks like it may be the same girl. These two stories may be different parts of one big story.

    I just watched the video at story 1, and they make it sound like he kidnapped her and then took her directly to the motel, where he was arrested. So the girl would not have had the chance to be involved in the events in story 2.

    Can we drop the euphemistic “human trafficking” and use the more accurate term slave taking?

    I am seeing a pattern. Connect the dots!

    The “coincidence” would seem to be only in the reported age of the two victims. The obvious implication to the story is that Orange County Florida might well be a central hub for underage sex trafficking.
