Local Siblings Arrested for Prostituting a Minor Online

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - A couple of local siblings have been arrested and charged with prostitution of a minor. The alleged victim was 15-years old.

The incident first came to light two days ago when concerned parents of a runaway reported to police that they had spotted a picture of their daughter on a website called "The Back Page." The site is known to advertise sexual services.

When police looked into the claim, they texted the number listed and now the two suspects, 17-year old Cordell Barefield and 21-year old Shelle Barefield, have been charged with compelling prostitution of a minor.

Kiii News Anchor Rudy Trevino looked into their arrest and came back with the details.
