ATLANTA--Jessica Loren Posey was sentenced today to seven years in federal prison for transporting a 16-year-old juvenile girl to Tennessee, Kentucky, and Ohio for the purpose of prostitution, according to federal authorities.
In 2010, court evidence indicated that Posey met the juvenile girl at a party. While the victim was only 16 years old, Posey caused her to engage in prostitution.
Posey, 25, of Atlanta, used a laptop computer to create advertisements of the child that she placed on websites. This included uploaded nude photographs of the juvenile on her cell phone and on a website.
Posey arranged for customers to engage in sex acts with the victim; and rented the hotel rooms where she caused the girl to engage in prostitution, federal officials stated.
She also drove the juvenile and other young women to various locations outside Georgia to commit commercial sex acts, including Chattanooga and Knoxville, Tennessee; Ohio; and Kentucky. Posey received half the proceeds earned by the juvenile victim and the other young women.
Following Posey's arrest, the victim returned to live with her family.
