Arrests in underage prostitution ring


UNDATED (WSAU) Three people are under arrest for running a child prostitution ring in Central Wisconsin. The suspects are identified as 19-year-old Darrell Vaughn of Schofield, 18-year-old Nicole Riehle of Wausau, and 27-year-old Barbi Metzner of Wausau.

Police believe the suspects had at least three 17-year-old girls who were working as prostitutes, and were performing sex acts in hotels and homes in Wausau, Green Bay, and Milwaukee.

Police made arrests when one of the 17-year-olds refused to leave Metzner's house after a dispute over how much she'd be paid. The victim confessed to working as a prostitute when police arrived.

A fourth person, 21-year-old William Payne, is the alleged mastermind of the prostitution ring. He turned himself into his probation officer after the others were arrested. He has not yet been charged.
