The teens were allowed to come and go as they pleased, but were forced to have sex with Washington’s customers – men who responded to online ads on Craig’s List and backpage.com – to earn food, shelter and clothing.
“A lot of these victims don’t feel like they have any other avenue to go in these types of situations,” Putnam said. “We have reason to believe there are other (victims).”

She wasn’t there, but agents were waiting when she returned to arrest her.
She was taken to the Clayton County jail, where she remained Thursday afternoon.
