UPDATE: Alyssa Catherine White was officially charged in Tulsa County with felony pimping a minor and engaging in prostitution on Sept. 11, 2013.
9/16/2013 – Tulsa, OK — A Tulsa woman has been arrested and faces human trafficking charges after it is alleged she was pimping out a 15-year-old girl.
According to reports, 25-year-old Alyssa Catherine White was posting ads for prostitution online at Backpage.com.
Last Wednesday, undercover officers with the Tulsa Police Vice Unit and Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs responded to one of the ads and were directed to a home in the 3200 block of South 127th East Avenue.
An undercover officer was told by the girl at the residence that she would have sex with him for $100.
When the girl was taken into custody it was learned that she was only 15.
The girl later told officers that she was using an ad placed by White and that White also lives in the residence.
At the same time the juvenile was being taken into custody, White was responding to another undercover officer that was posing as a ‘John’ at the America’s Best Value Inn near 31st Street and Memorial.
Human trafficking can be prosecuted as a federal crime and, if convicted, can result in a sentence ranging from 10 years to life in a federal prison.
White was booked into the Tulsa County Jail on complaints of human trafficking and soliciting prostitution.
White’s bond has been set at $100,100.
In Oklahoma County, White most recently received a deferred sentence to her guilty plea of driving with a suspended license in March of 2011.
In January of 2011 White was also given a deferred sentence after she pleaded guilty to felony possession of a controlled and dangerous substance with intent to distribute.
In related news, earlier this month a Tulsa police officer was busted in a felony prostitution sting. Last month a woman who had just previously been arrested in OKC during Operation Cross Country was only days later arrested in Tulsa for sex trafficking a 14-year-old girl.
