Metro detectives charged a Georgia man with trafficking for sexual servitude after they said two 17-year-olds girls agreed to have sex with an undercover detective for money.

After arranging a prostitution deal, police arrested Tyree Walker, 36, in the hotel parking lot with evidence including a room receipt and photos of a Backpage.com escort ad, which led police to the trio.

Detectives from the Metro police Specialized Investigations Division answered the Internet ad and met the two girls at the Comfort Inn on Elm Hill Pike Monday night.

Walker, from Macon, Ga., was also charged with marijuana possession after police said they found a small bag of marijuana in his pocket, along with $485.

He is being held on $52,000 bond.

The two teens were charged in Juvenile Court with prostitution. One of the girls is also from Macon, while the other is from Norfolk, Va.

Thank you for busting these victimless criminals and keeping them
off the street , so that folks who wish to engage in consensual sex
can now engage in the same act with other consensual partners who
are not paying for it with money .

Sounds pretty dumb to me .
But it safer than going after real criminals hey !

While I can see the poster's point, "victimless"? I wonder how Mr. Walker treats his two young employees (who, being underage and from across state lines, may end up making this a federal case and then hoo wheee!).
