A New Jersey woman who went by the nickname "China White" pleaded guilty Wednesday to forcing a 16-year-old girl from New York into prostitution, officials said. Jessica Copeland, 29, pleaded guilty to second-degree facilitating human trafficking, N.J. Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino said in a news release.

Under the plea agreement, prosecutors will recommend that Copeland be sentenced to six years in state prison, including no parole for three years.

“This defendant threatened a 16-year-old girl with violence to keep her trapped in a hellish life of sexual slavery,” Porrino said in a news release. “This is a classic case of human trafficking, in which the perpetrators isolated and intimidated a vulnerable victim so they could exploit her for their profit."
