Police: Man Used MySpace To Lure Girl Into Prostitution

Yet another article on the ever expanding epidemic of online child prostitution via KFMB-TV out of Florida:
"Authorities said a man used MySpace, Craigslist and other Internet services to recruit teenage girls into what was supposed to be a glamorous life of luxury, but turned out to be prostitution.

A man who identified himself as Charles Tyrone Young of Orlando, Fla. was arrested and charged with sex trafficking of minors by San Diego County sheriff's deputies, who were working with Los Angeles police, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Young, 28, reportedly used MySpace to entice a juvenile girl from Florida to his house in Las Vegas, where FBI agents said the girl "thought she was going to be a star." Instead, according to an affidavit from the federal agent, the girl met other teenaged girls already working as prostitutes.
