Alexa De Armas, 17, was arrested last Friday in Venice, Florida, for allegedly running a prostitution ring on Facebook.

According to prosecutors, De Armas was pimping out students from Venice and Riverview high schools.

De Armas was charged with a felony of human trafficking of a person younger than 18, notes the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

According to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, other students told Venice High School resource officers that De Armas and another unidentified student created a plan on Facebook to pimp out teens for money and booze.

“Why pimp out old hoes when I have fresh young hoes I can give up for money?” De Armas allegedly wrote on Facebook. “As long as I'm getting paid I'm trafficking all these [expletive].”

NBC News reports that John Mosher was also arrested last Friday for allegedly paying De Armas a bottle of booze and $40 to have sex with a girl, 15, at a community pool.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s office stated in its report, "[The underage girl] stated she told Mosher she did not want to have sexual intercourse with him to which he disregarded and forcefully held her against the wall of the pool shed building, restricting her movement and ability to flee."

Mosher was charged with felony sexual battery.

De Armas and the other student allegedly set up two more future sexual encounters involving students, say authorities.
