(WMC-TV) - A 19-year-old woman is in jail after police say she forced a teenage runaway into prostitution.

Investigators say multiple men paid Lilmekea Hunter so they could have sex with the 15-year-old victim.

Hunter told officers she met the girl earlier this month at a skating rink and invited her to a sleep over, according to court records. However, investigators say, the victim never returned home after spending the night.

The girl called her mother on Christmas Eve and told her she was being held against her will, officer said. When police responded to Hunter's home, she admitted to them that men had paid her to have sex with the teenager, according to a police report.

Hunter has been charged with sex trafficking.
