MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - A Memphis woman will spend 14 years behind bars after she forced two teens into prostitution by luring them with the promise of a trip to a Texas water park.

At an October 11 hearing, Kala Bray, 19, was sentenced to 168 months in prison for conspiracy to engage in child sex trafficking and sex trafficking by force, fraud and coercion.

According to the indictment, Bray and her co-defendant, boyfriend Vincent "Pistol Pete" Jones, recruited two Memphis-area teens and lured them to Houston in the summer of 2011 with promises of a trip to a water park. The teens were given drugs, including Oxycontin and Xanax, and were made to engage in sex acts for money in Memphis and Houston.

Jones, who has pleaded guilty to sex trafficking conspiracy, is scheduled to be sentenced on December 14, 2012.

Following her 14 years in federal prison, Kala Bray will also serve five years supervised release and must register as a sex offender.

SICK! SICK! SICK!! A teen herself..how could she put another teen(or 2)in that type of situation. Glad she will have plenty of time to think of her actions, hope the "boyfriend" gets the same. Also this rises the reminder to teach our children their true value and be involved in who they have in their lives and the things they are doing. Prayers for the teens in their healing and the families....as well as the criminals, because they NEED prayer to change as well!!
