Arizona men charged with human trafficking in Oklahoma County
Tyree L. Turner, 27, and Jamar R. Reineke, 24, of Phoenix, accused of forcing a 16-year-old girl to work as a prostitute in three states, including Oklahoma
Two Arizona men face human trafficking charges, accused of forcing a 16-year-old girl to work as a prostitute in Oklahoma City, court papers show.
Tyree Lajuan Turner, 27, and Jamar Rodney Reineke, 24, both of Phoenix, were charged Thursday in Oklahoma County District Court with one count each of human trafficking and conspiracy to commit human trafficking.
Two others, Deonnia Sky Allen, 25, of Glendale, Ariz., and Jamie Lynn Knight, 35, of Avondale, Ariz., were charged with one count each of using a computer to advertise prostitution, and receiving or concealing money made from prostitution.
All four were taken into custody Oct. 25 after an Oklahoma City police officer investigating online escort services arrested the girl, who was working as a prostitute at a hotel in the 5900 block of SW 8, according to affidavits filed in the case.
The undercover officer located the girl through a known prostitution website, police said.
The girl told police Reineke was her pimp and had made her work in Arizona, Texas and Oklahoma, a detective reported in a search warrant affidavit.
Turner and Reineke were being held Friday in the Oklahoma County jail, with bail set at $250,000 each, a jailer said. Bail for Allen and Knight is set at $30,000 apiece.
