The Oklahoma County District Attorney's Office has filed charges against two men suspected of forcing a 16-year-old girl into prostitution.

On October 25, Oklahoma City Police arrested Jamar Reineke, Tyree Turner, Deonnia Allen, and Jamie Knight on suspicion of human trafficking. Police say an undercover officer contacted the victim through a website known for prostitution. The two arranged to meet.

When the victim arrived at the Comfort Inn Airport Hotel near Interstate 40 and S. MacArthur Boulevard, police arrested her. They questioned her and discovered she was 16 years old.

The girl later identified 24-year-old Reineke as her pimp, and said he'd forced her to work in Oklahoma, Texas and Arizona. Police later found Reineke in the laundry room of the hotel, and arrested him.

Turner, 27, was arrested after officers discovered he traveled with the victim and Reineke. Police say Allen, 25, and Knight, 35, were also working as prostitutes, and traveled with the victim.

Reineke and Turner have been charged with human trafficking and conspiracy to commit a felony. Knight and Allen have been charged with using a computer to violate Oklahoma statutes, and receiving, acquiring or concealing proceeds derived from prostitution.
