UPDATE: 14-year-old charged with prostitution

UPDATE, 5 PM:

According to Eatonton Police investigator Alan Reid, the 14-year old girl caught having sexual intercourse, is charged with prostitution.

Police turned her over to the Youth Detention Center on November 16.

"We obtained her cell phone and looked through it and she had obviously kept all these Facebook messages and text messages to these guys," said Reid.

He says she had an inbox full of nude pictures from the men and the prices for her services.

He says the messages show where and when the men would meet the girl.

"It was probably five different places that she would go. She would tell them meet me here. Dirt road, parking lot," said Reid.

So far 8 of the 10 men sought have been arrested.

Dantreze Onveckio Nelson is the latest suspect to be arrested in a Putnam County prostitution investigation involving a 14-year-old girl.
