"It's becoming more alarming to us that we're seeing that there's a market for this and that. It’s becoming more prevalent with the demand and the supply side of things.” said U.S. Attorney Northern District of Oklahoma, Danny C. Williams Sr.
Earlier this month a Florida woman and a North Carolina man pled guilty to trafficking a 14 year-old girl for prostitution in Tulsa. U.S. Attorneys said they first approached the girl at store in Tulsa.
"He then took her to buy her new clothes, then took her out east to a motel and began to prostitute her out,” said Williams.
According to court documents the couple used an online service called Backpage com to advertise the young girl. Tulsa Police sex crimes investigators see the site a lot in the Tulsa area.
