The Super Bowl is bringing out the crazy in some people. First, we find out that a high-end escort service was busted for trying to sell "party packs" of cocaine and prostitutes to people in town to watch Sunday's big game, and now this: a mom from Florida drove her 15-year-old daughter to New York City so she could take advantage of the crowds of people descending upon the city for the Super Bowl and offer her teen up for sex -- or fetish activities.
Yolanda Ostoloza admitted to cops that she traveled all the way up the East Coast in order to work with a pimp and make money through prostitution and escorting. Assuming, I guess, that this would make things a little better in cops' eyes, she reportedly said she thought her daughter would just do the "fetish stuff." What a relief! (Uh, no).
Undercover police were able to catch the woman by disguising themselves online as potential customers and setting up a meeting time with the teen at a popular NYC hotel, where she had agreed to perform a certain sex act in exchange for $200. After she was busted, the girl confessed that her mom orchestrated the plan and was waiting at another hotel. Cops busted the woman, along with her friend, and charged mom with promoting prostitution and endangering the welfare of a child.
She's being held on $2,000 bail while her daughter is in child protective services.
I can't imagine how desperate someone has to be to view her daughter's body as a commodity and place money over her own safety. I know not everyone holds the same values when it comes to sex and that moms and dads pass those values or lack of them on to their children. I really hope this young girl receives emotional and mental support that will allow her to work through the ridiculous amount of crazy she's had to endure at the hands of her own mother.
What do you think would drive this mom to prostitute her own daughter?
