A Phoenix woman was arrested Thursday for taking naked photos of a 17-year-old prostitute who was allegedly working for her boyfriend, according to police.

A witness told police that Mike Cotham and Stacey Carol Flynn, 37, were using a minor as a prostitute, police said.

Flynn said in an interview that she didn't want the girl to be a prostitute because of her age, police said.

Flynn also admitted to taking photos of the girl, but would not tell police if she was wearing clothes.

Police obtained a search warrant and found several naked images of the girl.

The girl said she was in two of the pictures and told police Flynn took the pictures of her.

Flynn was arrested and booked for exploiting a minor by taking and possessing the pictures.

Cotham was arrested for child prostitution.
