County allegedly gave the teens drugs and alcohol and made them take pictures of themselves in lingerie, which she would then post online to set up “dates” for the teenagers to have sex for money, according to the affidavit. County would then take the money from the girls, the affidavit continued.
The victims told police County would drive them to various hotels around the city and had a man with her who would threaten to hurt the teenagers if they attempted to leave, the affidavit said.
Eventually, one of the girls escaped and told a social worker.
County’s bail was set at $75,000.
A 29-year-old man who was at the home associated with the trafficking case was also arrested. Joshua Clark is facing sexual assault of a child charges after one of the teenage girls told police he forced her into having sex with him, the affidavit said.
