Following an investigation, OPD investigators learned that the juvenile female was being prostituted with the assistance of Prince and Howell.

On April 8, Howell and Prince were both arrested on the charge of procuring sexual servitude of a minor.

A Lafayette County Justice Court judge issued each Prince and Howell a bond of $10,000.

According to OPD, this is still an ongoing investigation and further details could be released at a later date.
