The Georgia man Metro police charged with trafficking two 17-year-old girls for sexual servitude is set to appear in court Friday morning.
Police arrested Tyree Walker, 36, Monday night at a Comfort Inn on Elm Hill Pike after an undercover detective made a deal with the two underage girls to have sex for money. Beside the felony charge for sexual servitude, Walker also faces a drug possession charge for allegedly having a small amount of marijuana on him at the time of his arrest.
A Backpage.com Internet escort ad led police to contact the trio. When police arrested Walker in the hotel’s parking lot, they said he had a receipt for the girls’ room in his pocket as well as photos of the Backpage.com ad.
Walker, who is from Macon, Ga., remains in jail on a $52,000 bond.
The two teenage girls have been charged with prostitution in juvenile court. One of the girls is also from Macon, and the other is from Norfolk, Va.
