Police say a 15-year-old Venice High School student was already in juvenile custody for an unrelated case when he
was charged Tuesday with human trafficking.
On Friday, a Sarasota High School student, 17-year-old Alexa Nicole De Armas was arrested and charged with human trafficking of a person under 18. Venice police say at least one act of prostitution took place which led to the arrest of 21-year-old John Michael Mosher. He's accused of paying $40 and a bottle of liquor to have s*x with a 15- year-old girl.
Police Capt. Tom Mattmuller told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune no additional arrests were immediately expected. Officials say the ring was uncovered when four students confided to administrators at Venice High School.
