DONALDSONVILLE, La. (AP) - Ascension Parish sheriff's deputies have arrested a fourth person wanted in the prostitution of a 14-year-old girl.
The sheriff's office says in a news release that Gregory Hardin of Addis was booked Thursday on counts of criminal conspiracy to commit soliciting to prostitutes, criminal conspiracy to commit prostitution with persons under the age of 18 and trafficking of children for sexual purposes.
Authorities allege Hardin conspired with Lakeisha Marshall of Donaldsonville to prostitute the girl for drugs and money. Marshall and two others were arrested in the case in December.
Deputies say the girl was prostituted out of Marshall's home. Two others prostituted the girl in the New Orleans area and other south Louisiana cities.
The girl was removed from the home and placed in state custody.
