Trio arrested for allegedly prostituting a child in Lakewood

LAKEWOOD, Colo. - Accused of prostituting a 15-year-old girl, two women and a man now face multiple felony charges.

Between May 1, 2013 and July 4, 2013, the trio allegedly provided the teenager a place to live and clothing in exchange for her having sex with strangers for money. Pam Russell, spokeswoman for First Judicial District Attorney Pete Weir, says the teenager lived with two of the suspects in a home owned by the third suspect at 11331 W. Florida Avenue in Lakewood.

According to court records, the suspects drove the teenager to various motels, including the Denver West Inn in Lakewood, to meet the johns. The johns were solicited through Backpage.com and other online escort sites, Russell reports.

The teenager was taken into custody, Russell reports, when Denver Police found her in the passenger seat of a car on July 4 and learned she had an open warrant for a probation violation. Officers contacted an FBI task force after they became concerned she was a runaway.

While she was being prostituted, the girl estimated that she earned $1,000 per week. Weir's office alleges that all of that money was given to Roger Miguel McLamb, 35.

McLamb, who was on federal parole at the time, now faces charges of trafficking of a child, pimping of a child, soliciting of a child for prostitution, pandering of a child, procurement of a child, keeping a place of prostitution and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He is being held on $10,000 bond.

Co-defendant Susan Asha Johnson, 23, is accused of living with the teenager and McLamb. She is charged with pandering of a child, procurement of a child, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and menacing. Her bond is set at $5,000.

The owner of the home in Lakewood was identified by Russell as Tracy Lynn Wilson, 33. She was arrested for procurement of child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Her bond is set at $2,000.

All of the charges against all three defendants are felonies.
