A 20-year-old Iowa woman is suspected of pimping out a 16-year-old girl.

Brittany Lanier, of Des Moines, allegedly used the teen in a prostitution business, according to the Des Moines Register.

An undercover officer was contacted by the 16-year-old girl on Friday afternoon, when the two agreed to meet at a hotel. The teen said she would provide "full-service sex" for $70, the paper reported. Lanier reportedly gave the girl training, advertising and equipment, including condoms and pepper spray. She also took a cut of the pay, officers told KCRG.

Lanier was slapped with charges of pimping, pandering, prostitution and human trafficking, the Associated Press reports.
