Two Charged For Trying To Pimp Teen They Met on Myspace


Two Tacoma residents are behind bars on allegations they used to lure a teen into prostituting on Seattle streets.

Arrested July 1, Dena Renee Derosa, 20, and Damenique L. Beasley, 21, have been accused with attempting to pimp a child on allegations that they tried to prostitute at least two girls at several locations in King County.

In charging documents, Seattle vice detectives claim one 17-year-old girl was made to spend a night walking “tracks” in SeaTac and Seattle after Derosa tricked her with false promises of a job. After Derosa picked her up, the girl told police, she refused to take her home unless she made her money, rejecting the girl’s offer to pay her out of her own checking account.
