Two years ago, a 15-year-old girl was kidnapped from Ybor City by a man who tried to force her to become a prostitute in Orlando, federal officials say.

The man, Weylin Ollie Rodriguez, also known as Rico, is scheduled to go on trial in U.S. District Court later this month on child sex trafficking and weapons charges.

On Tuesday, one of the women accused of helping Rodriguez coerce child and adult prostitutes pleaded guilty to conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of a minor by coercion.

Tatujuana Joye, 22, of Kissimmee, could face up to life in prison, but likely will receive a lesser sentence under a plea deal. Joye also has agreed to cooperate with the prosecution.
