A tip from a social worker led police to arrest a Jonesboro, Ga. woman for allegedly forcing two teenagers living with her to have sex with men for money.

According to this report from CBS in Atlanta, the girls were aged 14 and 16. The 14-year-old is getting treatment but authorities are still trying to locate the 16-year-old.

Jessica Washington, 27, is in jail charged with trafficking of persons for labor or servitude, enticing a child for indecent purposes, keeping a place of prostitution and pimping.

Washington is a dancer at the Gold Rush Club.
