SUMMARY:

Deborah Gail Frock, age 39 at the time, met the victim when she was 17 and in high school. They discovered they were distantly related, and became friends. Frock began providing the victim with marijuana and crack cocaine.

Frock posted pictures of the girl on various websites with the words "Available Now." Frock then set up dates for the victim in Maryland and also transported the victim across state lines to Virginia and Massachusetts to have intercourse and participate in pornographic photo shoots in exchange for drugs or money.

This continued from July 2006 to October 2006. Frock was arrested in 2008 and charged in 2009. Frock pleaded guilty to one charge of sex trafficking a minor and received a sentence of 120 months.
