An Oakland woman has been sentenced in federal court to eight years in prison for transporting a 14-year-old girl to Las Vegas to engage in commercial sex acts.
Carrie Myles, 38, was given the sentence Monday by U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam, who also ordered her to spend five years on supervised release following her prison term.
Myles pleaded guilty before Gilliam in February to one count of transporting a person across state lines for purposes of illegal sexual activity.
U.S. Attorney's Office spokesman Abraham Simmons said Myles admitted during her plea to urging the girl to engage in commercial sex acts on approximately a daily basis for nearly one month in 2015.
She admitted posting photos of the girl in provocative clothing on a website, instructing her to tell customers she was an adult and controlling the girl's cell phone, Simmons said.
The exploitation ended when Myles was arrested on Sept. 8, 2015, when she dropped the girl off at an Oakland hotel to meet a supposed customer who turned out to be an undercover officer, according to court filings.
