A teenager is being held in juvenile hall facing accusations of pimping a woman twice his age, and his alleged prostitute is facing child endangerment charges for being with him.
The couple was arrested early Tuesday morning in Roseville.
An officer noticed a car driving around 1 a.m. without its lights on. The 17-year-old man was behind the wheel, and did not have a drivers’ license. The passenger, 34-year-old Vanessa Gumataotao, was arrested on suspicion of prostitution and child abuse/endangerment in connection with using the teen as her pimp.
The teen was taken to juvenile hall and is not being identified at this time.
Gumataotao is in the Placer County Jail.
