Federal prosecutors say a Utica woman faces at least 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to sex trafficking a 16-year-old girl in upstate New York two years ago.
According to authorities, Alexandria Samson Davall admitted that in February 2012 that she and others recruited and prostituted the girl, who had run away from a state juvenile detention facility, and shared in money and drugs from customers.
Davall is in jail and faces sentencing July 22.
The federal charge of sex trafficking of a child carries a minimum term of 10 years in prison and a possible maximum of life in prison.
State police announced in November 2012 they arrested nine people in connection with the case, including Davall, then 23.
Federal charges were filed last year.
