Rhode Island woman admits role in sex trafficking case involving teen girl


PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — A Rhode Island woman has admitted to working with two men to traffic a teenage girl and 22-year-old woman for prostitution.

The Providence Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1JOHl1m ) 21-year-old Raechyl Spooner of Pawtucket pleaded guilty in federal court in Providence Friday. She admitted conspiring with Kemont Bowie and Ricky Wallace to bring a 17-year-old girl and a woman Wallace met at a Boston train station to a Pawtucket apartment for prostitution.

U.S. Attorney Pamela Chin said Wallace arranged for Bowie and Spooner to drive the girl and woman in August 2014 to Pawtucket, where the girl was trained to become a prostitute. Chin said the 22-year-old woman was taken to Seekonk, Massachusetts, to engage in sex acts.

Spooner is to be sentenced in September.

Bowie and Wallace pleaded guilty and await sentencing.
