An East Moline, Illinois woman has been sentenced to 17 years in prison for arranging sexual encounters between other people, and a 14-year-old girl.

Danielle A. Johnson, 24, arranged the meetings at various locations in Iowa and Illinois, reports Our Quad Cities.

Johnson “was arranging meetings with the 14-year-old juvenile and various subjects for the purpose of exchanging sexual acts for money,” said Moline Police Department Lt. John Hitchcock.

Johnson’s arrest occurred on July 17, 2014. She was originally charged with involuntary sexual servitude of a minor, plus three counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a minor. The aggravated sexual abuse charges were dismissed when Johnson pleaded guilty to involuntary sexual servitude of a minor, reports WQAD.

Johnson will serve 17 years in prison, and three years of mandatory supervised release.
