A Marietta man pimped out a 16-year-old girl for prostitution in a Super 8 motel on Franklin Gateway, police say.
Emmanuel Fleming, 20, is in the Cobb County jail without bond facing seven charges, including sex trafficking, jail records show.
An arrest warrant states Fleming took the teenage girl away from her Smyrna home without permission from the child’s grandmother and legal guardian between Aug. 30 and Sept. 1, when he rented out a Super 8 motel room in Marietta where he engaged that child in prostitution.
“Said accused did obtain a motel room and enable said child to perform acts of prostitution and did share in the financial proceeds,” the warrant states. “The child stated she was doing it to help him because he was homeless.”
Police say they located six escort advertisements listing the teen for sex services on an adult escort website between June 10 and July 14.
“The child advised they did prostitution all summer,” Fleming’s warrant states.
Police further allege Fleming stole $40 from a male teenager’s wallet.
Jail records show he faces felony charges of sex trafficking, armed robbery, aggravated sodomy, aggravated assault, robbery and possessing a gun or knife during the commission of a crime.
Fleming is also charged with one misdemeanor count of interfering with custody in relation to taking the 16-year-old girl from her home without her guardian’s permission.
