Student Accused of Organizing Prostitution Ring in School

High school is a time for being entrepreneurial if you're thinking paper route, pizza delivery, or, hey, even starting your own business. As long as that business isn't a prostitution ring. One high school student apparently did not get that memo and has been charged with attempting to organize students in two high schools into a prostitution ring.


Alexa Nicole De Armas, 17, of Venice, Florida, has been charged with arranging for a 15-year-old girl to have sex with a 21-year-old man in exchange for booze and $40. De Armas and her "business partner" -- another high school student -- allegedly tried to pimp out other teens. Police say they found details of their plan in Facebook messages, with one saying:

Why pimp out old hoes when I have fresh young hoes I can give up for money? As long as I'm getting paid I'm trafficking all these [expletive deleted].

According to police, the sex act that De Armas arranged between the 15-year-old girl and the 21-year-old man wasn't even consensual, and the teen girl tried to fight off the man before being raped. The man, John Michael Mosher, has been arrested.

De Armas' alleged prostitution ring plans were busted after administrators at Venice High School were approached by four students saying that she and an accomplice were trying to recruit girls into their "business."

Cops intercepted De Armas' Facebook account and reportedly found messages about the alleged prostitution ring, in which men could pay to have sex with virgins for $100.

It's unfathomable that a teen girl could come up with this type of plan and try to implement it. Kids in school should be safe from this type of predatory behavior -- especially from one of their own. Thank goodness this alleged operation was shut down before it could go any further and destroy a lot of young lives.
