Young 17 year old forced into prostitution’ after being lured to motel with promise of babysitting job
Christopher White, 19, and Adria Regn, 28, face numerous charges, including human trafficking of a minor, the state Attorney General’s office said in a Monday indictment that was made public Tuesday.
Authorities said the pair lured the teen to a motel room in October, asking her to babysit Regn’s two young children. But they instead allegedly gave her methamphetamine and marijuana and told her she needed to work as an escort. She was told Regn’s children would end up on the street if she refused, police said.
The pair forced the teen to have sex with several men each day and threatened to beat her if she ran off, officials said. The girl eventually escaped after the two fell asleep.
White and Regn are being represented by public defenders who declined to comment.
Attorney General Christopher Porrino called the case “especially heartbreaking” in a statement on Tuesday.
The couple has been detained at the Burlington County Jail since their arrest in May.
