19-year-old Destiny Santilli of Brandon, Florida, was arrested for allegedly prostituting a 16-year-old girl on Backpage. The 16-year-old girl was a runaway at the time. Santilli reportedly took explicit pictures of the girl and posted them to Backpage while keeping most of the money the girl made.
Thanks to Backpage, just about anybody could become a pimp if they want. All you need is a willingness to bend people to your will with force and violence.
And again, this shows one more underage girl who escaped Backpage’s supposed ‘stringent precautions’ that are supposed to keep children from being trafficked on their site. More than likely Backpage probably edited the ad to let it through.
