SUMMARY:During a traffic stop for expired tags, defendants were found with a minor, 17, who stated the men (the defendants plus the driver) were holding her against her will for purposes of prostitution. The minor had been involved with Carpenter in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for 4 years and he had coerced her into prostitution, and was required to earn $700/day. Eventually, she told him that she did not want to be a prostitute and wanted to go to school--Carpenter sent her to Florida on a bus where she met with the Jennings and was forced, once again, into prostitution, this time with a $500/day requirement. She was threatened with a beating if she did not make that much per day.
