TEMPE, Ariz. -- A Valley teen is facing a child prostitution charge after attempting to trade sex for food.
Faelyn Ritz, 18, was arrested Monday after she and a 14-year-old girl agreed to have sex with two men in exchange for a meal at McDonald’s.
Police approached Ritz after watching her, the 14-year-old, and the two men discuss a deal in the area of Priest and Broadway.
While speaking with officers, Ritz admitted that she had reached an agreement with the men to swap sexual favors for food at McDonald’s.
Ritz also revealed that she has been prostituting since the age of 15, and charges $200 an hour for her services.
Ritz said she met the 14-year-old through a mutual friend, but didn’t discover her age until they had checked into a room at a Motel 6.
Ritz stated that she and the girl had agreed to walk up and down the street soliciting prostitution for food. Ritz added that she planned to take a portion of the money the girl made from prostituting.
Ritz was arrested and booked into the Tempe jail.
