LEXINGTON - Three Lexington men have been arrested and charged with having sex with a 15-year-old girl in exchange for money the girl's mother kept to buy crack cocaine, authorities say.
Jim Louis Finley, 28; Jeremy Joe Futch, 29; and Michael Eugene Roscoe, 31; have been charged with one count each of criminal sexual conduct with a minor and criminal solicitation of a minor, Lexington County Sheriff James Metts said Sunday.
According to arrest warrants, Finley and Futch are each accused of paying the girl's mother $60 in exchange for the girl performing oral sex on them at the mother's home.
Roscoe paid the mother an undetermined amount of money to have sex with the girl in October, authorities said.
On Saturday, authorities charged a 44-year-old Lexington woman with forcing her two teenage daughters to have sex with men. The mother, whose name has not been released to protect her daughters' identity, has been charged with promoting prostitution involving a minor, unlawful neglect of a child and permitting a child to engage in an obscene act.
Those charges only pertain to the 15-year-old, but more charges in connection with the 17-year-old daughter are expected, Metts said Saturday.
The woman forced her oldest daughter to work as a prostitute for four years, Metts said.
