The news has been well reported that a group of 10 Americans were arrested trying to smuggle about 33 Haitian children across the border into the Dominican Republic. But now the story gets more bizarre. The so-called lawyer that the group contracted with is not a lawyer at all -- he is a key witness in a child prostitution ring, authorities say. His name is Jorge Puello and allegedly his wife in Salvador had been convicted in a child prostitution ring there, and he had been wanted by Salvadoran police but fled the country. Interpol has issues a wanted person alert for Puello. Retrieved Feb. 14, 2010, from http://www.theage.com.au/action/printarticle?id=1118951.

girls into being sex slaves is "lust for money" according to this article. The owners of have to pay of course to secure the services of these girls from traffickers. but, the article continues, the brothel owners can "recoup the 'purchase price' in up to seven months."
