Three tried to prostitute teen - DA
A teenage girl and two henchmen have been indicted in a sick plot to turn a 15-year-old runaway into a prostitute - in a bid to raise bail money for a Bloods gang member, Queens prosecutors said yesterday.
Karen Lockhart, 18, is expected to be arraigned today for allegedly befriending the runaway and taking her to a home in Far Rockaway where she was kept naked, sexually assaulted, and beaten over three days.
But the girl, who was kept at the house from May 29 to June 1, repeatedly refused to prostitute herself and managed to escape, flagging down a passing motorist, while clad in only a jacket.
"The three defendants are accused of the forcible abduction and the brutal physical and sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl whom they tried to force into prostitution," Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said. "Fortunately, the young girl was an extremely strong-willed individual and refused."

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
