Wynne woman gets 12 years for prostituting minor cousins


The U.S. attorney's office in Little Rock said this afternoon that Amber Johnson, 30, of Wynne had been sentenced by Judge Price Marshall to 12 years in federal prison 
for prostituting 15- and 17-year-old cousins who'd run away from a foster home.

The news release said they ran away in November 2014. They lived with Johnson and her two young children in hotels in Jonesboro and North Little Rock. The teens would babysit while Johnson went looking for male clients to give a phone number.

When the male customers contacted Johnson, she would let them select which girl they wanted to have sex with: the 15-year-old, the 17-year-old, or herself. The men would come to the hotel, pick up the girl they chose, and either rent another hotel room or drive the girl to their home for sex. Johnson began by charging $20, but increased to $50 and sometimes charged $100. She told the Judge Marshall at her change of plea hearing in November that she used the money for hotel rooms, food, and “things we needed.” Arkansas State Police located and arrested Johnson on April 29, 2015.
