Florida Mom Arrested for Trying to Pimp Out Teen Daughter to Super Bowl Fans

U.S.

Police arrested a Florida mom in New York this week for allegedly attempting to pimp her 15-year-old daughter out to Super Bowl fans.

Cops posing as prospective clients online met the teen at a Midtown hotel on Wednesday after promising to pay her $200 for a sex act, the New York Daily News reports. The girl told them she was just 15, so cops arrested her mother, Yolanda Ostoloza, who was at a different Midtown hotel. She was charged with promoting prostitution and acting in a manner injurious to a child less than 17, NYPD Sgt. Jessica McRorie confirmed to TIME.

When it was searched in the hospital, Vogel’s purse contained a total of three syringes, including two with a clear liquid, police said. Police documents said Vogel is a retired registered nurse who formerly worked at the hospital, Chandler Regional Medical Center.

A police report of the incident show’s Espiritu’s cold response to why he did it.  The report states Espiritu told police he “wanted to” and that he “likes to hurt dogs.”  The complaint goes into even more detail of what happened.  When asked if the dog provoked him,  Espiritu tells police, ” Nope, I just wanted to stab the dog so I sat on the floor and cut its neck.”

At the time, Espiritu’s stepfather and mother told police they were concerned with his mental health.  Espiritu has a history of drug abuse and has also been known to disappear for weeks at a time.

A court asked for psychological evaluations on Espiritu, but doctors…

These are people like myself whom can’t find decent employment so take jobs pay next to nothing and have long term prospects for improvement. It would nice to see him focus on reversing but this doesn’t seem to be the case.
