Schoolgirl Works Weekend as Prostitute

February 26, 2009

A 15-year-old British schoolgirl has caused outrage after it emerged she worked as a part-time prostitute. The unidentified female worked the streets for two months and earned a staggering $20,000.

The girl was discovered after teachers found condoms, lubricant, and details of the agency she worked for in her school bag. The school informed the police and officers raided her home, where they discovered 8,000 pounds (about $11,000) hidden in her attic.

A 44-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman have been arrested on suspicion of inciting child prostitution. The schoolgirl is unlikely to face any charges, though the money police discovered is likely to be forfeited.
