FBI Nabs Saginaw Woman for Arranging ‘Sex Dates’ for 14-Year Old
Federal investigators have busted a Saginaw woman on sex trafficking charges, saying she arranged 'sex dates' for a 14-year-old girl who was in her care. Solicitation ads were posted on the online classified site Backpage.com.
Desiree Poole of Saginaw allegedly facilitated no fewer than three dates prostitution-type dates for the minor who is said to have charged $200 per hour. The 14-year old told the FBI she began living with Poole after she had been expelled from school and had run away from home.
Poole was arrested when FBI agents, suspicious that the girl could be a minor, arranged a meeting in Ann Arbor. Poole's cellphone number was in the girl's Backpage.com ad, and it was discovered that she had paid for the hotel room where the arrest took place.
