A teenage girl was arrested after being accused of running a prostitution ring.
The 17-year-old student of Florida, has been charged with human trafficking after allegedly organizing the prostitution by recruiting students from different schools, authorities said.
The Sarasota High School student was identified as Alexa Nicole De Armas. She was arrested on Friday, for leading the ring.
Police also arrested 21-year-old John Mosher, who allegedly paid $40 and a bottle of liquor to have sex with a 15-year-old girl. The girl was allegedly forced into the act against her will.
Officials busted the ring after four students confided to administrators at Venice High School, about being in a prostitution ring.
De Armas charged men between $50 and $70 – and $100 for having sex with a virgin. She then gave 40 percent of the profits to the underage victims.
Police said that none of the sexual activities took place on school grounds.
