Police: Woman imprisoned, pimped 14-year-old girl in Cobb

Cobb police are looking for a woman who allegedly imprisoned a 14-year-old runaway and pimped her out to men.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Brandi Yakeima Lasiter on two counts of false imprisonment and two counts of pimping.

According to the warrant, Lasiter asked the girl to leave home in December 2013. Between then and Jan. 12, Lasiter took the girl to The Hospitality Inn on Delk Road and the Country Hearth Inn and Suites on Windy Hill Road, she said.

“While in the room, said accused battered the juvenile along with providing the juvenile with illicit drugs for the purposes of keeping the juvenile in the room,” the warrant states.

Lasiter also took photos of the teen, posted them online “for the purposes of prostitution” and took calls from men soliciting sex, authorities said. According to the warrant, Lasiter arranged meetings with the callers and the teen.

“The juvenile stated she had sexual relations with men who left money in the room,” the warrant states.

No other details were available Saturday, Cobb police Sgt. Dana Pierce said.
