NE Mom Found Guilty In {Mother & Daughter} Prostitution Operation
CBS 3 ^ | Aug 31, 2009 11:37 pm US/Eastern | CBS 3

A Northeast Philadelphia woman has been found guilty on charges of being part of a mother-daughter prostitution operation.

Traci Young, 39, went on trial Monday and was found guilty.

Prosecutors said Young and her 22-year-old daughter Tami Smith, a mother of three, allegedly advertised acts of prostitution on the popular online classifieds site Craigslist.

Young and her daughter were arrested in the Wissinoming section on October 2, 2008.

Police said an undercover officer arranged a meeting with the women, who were under police surveillance for three weeks, via the Web site Craigslist. Their business was found under the exotic services section of the site with an ad for "mother and daughter tag team."

The officer met the women at a home they were renting in the 6100 block of Ditman Street.

Police said Young and Smith invited the officer into the home where the trio allegedly discussed services and agreed on a price tag of $200 to have sex with both women at the same time.

"It's a messed up world out there and we have to do this just to get by," Young told reporters as she was being led out of the home in handcuffs during the 2008 arrest.

Tami Smith had previously been sentenced to probation in June of this year.

I'm leaning towards not guilty, but it's tough to really tell. I think I'll give them the benefit of the doubt because I'm a very understanding person.

The recession must really be taking a toll on hookers...

This is just nuts. Make it legal, stop tying up our law enforcement and courts with what *consenting adults* are doing and tax it just like any other personal service job. Many people use their bodies in their profession, albeit not in an intimate way. Go after the real criminals, the pimps and the ones offering up children.

Need to add, this shouldn’t be going on in a home with children.

I was kind of thinking that way for this one. They were under surveillance for weeks? Someone tied up police resources for weeks just to catch a couple of hookers? Methinks priorities are a bit misplaced.

It might have been the ‘priorities’ of all the cops who needed time to get ‘up to speed’ on what had been posted on Craigslist.

You know, so they can ‘be aware’ of what’s going on in the neighborhood. ;)

This isn't about hookers. It's about taxes. Craigslist has been under attack presumably about "illicit sex" but what really pisses off the govt about CL is all that commerce going on without sales taxes being rendered to the govt.

Watch for the govt to require CL to somehow force the people who sell/buy on CL to report their sales to the taxman.
