    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa woman has been charged with using a 16-year-old girl in a prostitution business.

    The Des Moines Register reports the 16-year-old girl offered to have sex with an undercover police officer who contacted her for $70.

    Police say that the investigation led them to arrest 20-year-old Brittany Lanier on suspicion of human trafficking.

    Authorities say Lanier introduced the girl to prostitution, trained her and took some of the profits.

    Lanier hasn't entered a plea on the charge.
