2 girls plead guilty in teen pimping case
OTTAWA - Two of three teenaged girls accused of forcing other teens into prostitution have entered guilty pleas in a surprise about-face at their Ottawa trial.
Court was told Thursday that the two girls had reached a resolution with Crown prosecutors.
Justice Diane Lahaie has ordered a pre-sentence report and a psychiatric review of a girl who pleaded guilty to six charges, including human trafficking, making and distributing child pornography and exploitation.
She is to be sentenced on Dec. 20.
A 17-year-old girl facing the fewest charges in the case pleaded guilty to four charges including exploitation, assault, uttering threats and breaching the conditions of her bail.
The third accused, a 16-year-old girl facing the most charges in the case, did not change her not guilty plea. Her trial will continue in October.
