A Des Moines woman is facing charges of human trafficking for allegedly using a 16-year-old girl in a prostitution enterprise.

Brittany Lanier, 20, of 2211 E. Park Ave., Des Moines, is charged with pimping, pandering, prostitution and human trafficking. She has yet to enter a plea in the case.

According to police reports, an undercover officer was contacted by a 16-year-old girl on Friday afternoon and directed to a hotel where she said she would provide the officer with “full-service sex” in exchange for $70.

Police allege that Lanier introduced the girl to the prostitution trade and had provided her with training, advertising and equipment such as condoms and pepper spray.

Lanier allegedly also collected profits from the activity.
