Two Sisters Accused of Sex Trafficking Teen Girls
Two sisters from Rochester are accused of trafficking teen girls as prostitutes.
Federal Prosecutors charged Jerese and Chelsea Blue.
The investigation began when police were trying to locate a 14-year-old girl who ran away from home.
When the girl was found, she told police that from April 14 to April 18, she and another 17-year-old female had been introduced to prostitution by the Blue sisters.
The girl also told police the sisters used Jerese Blue’s laptop to begin posting ads for the girls using Backpage.com, an Internet classified advertisement website.
The 14-year-old girl said she had sexual relationships with numerous customers, with the sexual activity taking place at the homes of both defendants. On occasion, the 14-year-old claims she was taken to meet with customers at two motels. Jerese and Chelsea Blue allegedly kept most of the money earned by the minors through prostitution.
Both sisters are expected to surrender to police on Friday.
