    MD - Prince George man indicted in child sex trafficking case

    P.G. man indicted in child sex trafficking case
    By: Freeman Klopott

    Shelby Lewis was indicted on five counts of child sex trafficking. Authorities say the 42-year-old has been running his pimping operation since 2006. He was taken into custody after District police arrested two of his alleged victims - ages 14 and 16 - while they walked the prostitution track in May. The two girls pointed to Lewis as their pimp.

    [...]

    Around the same time as the two May arrests, authorities also located a 13-year-old girl who had been reported missing to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, prosecutors said. She told authorities Lewis had been prostituting her for the last three years. A fourth victim claimed to have started working for Lewis two years ago when she was 12.

    MD - Shelby Lewis Turns Foster Child Into Prostitute

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/lo...-65840457.html

    This story is so sickening
    He is charged with being a pimp, turning young children out into the street and is the foster parent of one of them, turning her out when she was 12 years old! Now I'm wondering if there was also a foster mother? This poor child!

    Just because you want to be with somebody does not mean they will take care of your children.

    Does any not "check" up on these kids to make sure they are O.K, in the home of the so called Foster Parents.

    Do they not interview the kids alone, take them out for a burger, ask them if they are happy and treated well.

    I just cannot believe that people can become Foster Parents and then "have" no one check.

    Happens every day in this country...........I urge everyone to read "Three Little Words" by Ashley Rhodes-Courter.Its a memoir of a child in foster care.

    I know when I was in foster care I wasnt visited one time by my Worker unless I was being moved to another home.My G.A.L never even asked me how I felt! The system is broke!

    I guess our system is different. The Children Aid workers have to have documented contact with the child every 2-4 weeks.

    Any "hint" of anything wrong, and the child is removed.

    We knew a cop who's family fostered a child. No problem. He had a "whiff" of pot one evening in the family garage. No one was in the garage, but he knew it was his teenage son.

    He told him, I have not as much concern as you smoking pot in the garage with your friends, then with the child who NEEDS a stable foster family and lots of love.

    He will be taken away if Children's Aid even gets a whiff of illegal drug use anywhere in or around the home.

    The son got the hint, the child needed a stable home more so then he needed to "smoke pot in the garage".

    The cop and his wife did not need the income from having a foster child, but wanted to provide a loving and stable home for a child who might otherwise not have one.
