A star of MTV’s "16 and Pregnant" was arrested in Newcastle, Delaware, for prostitution after reportedly agreeing to be paid for sex with an undercover police officer.
Valerie Fairman, 21, appeared on the hit television show when she was 15 years old in its second season. She became a fan favorite on the show for her relationship with the father of her daughter, Nevaeh.
Fairman was caught streetwalking around Newcastle after police received numerous complaints from neighbors about prostitution. Authorities conducted a sting, and the undercover officer allegedly approached Fairman about having sex in exchange for money.
When Fairman agreed, the officer revealed himself and she was arrested. According to reports, Fairman was one of eight women arrested in the sting. Fairman was arrested once before for she punching her adoptive mother in the face.
The young woman is reportedly still in custody.
