MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Among suspected prostitutes Memphis police arrested in a sweep was a 14-year-old girl who was supposed to be in school.
Police said the girl offered sex for 35 dollars and was arrested for prostitution near a school. Because she is under age, the charge becomes delinquency and she was cited into Juvenile Court.
WREG-TV quoted the girl's father as saying his daughter began acting out after her parents separated three years ago.
Authorities said they arrested 64 suspects in the three-day prostitution sting this week and are trying to seize at least 42 cars driven by people soliciting prostitutes.
