A 19-year-old woman has admitted pimping out a 14-year-old, accepting money from the client, and driving the girl to and from hotels around downtown Auckland.
Monika Rachael Kelly appeared at the High Court in Auckland this morning where she pleaded guilty to a representative charge of sexually exploiting a 14-year-old girl.
Kelly's charge covers four occasions in March and April last year.
According to the summary of facts, she set up a profile for the 14-year-old on a smartphone app used by prostitutes.
The 19-year-old solo mother took the girl to the hotels and then received payment from the client by way of internet bank transfers.
Some of the money went to the 14-year-old.
Kelly was due to go on trial next week but this morning's guilty plea means the trial is not necessary.
Justice Downs remanded her on bail but said there was every prospect she would face a lengthy prison term when she appeared for sentence in November.
