An Edmonton woman who admitted to trafficking two teenage girls for sex should be sentenced to 14 years in prison, Crown prosecutors argued Friday. Louisa Wallis, 27, was arrested in after an investigation by Edmonton police into two underage girls who were advertised online for sexual services. Wallis and her then-boyfriend initially faced a total of 34 charges including sexual interference, trafficking a minor and making child pornography.
She noted both victims were homeless and addicted to drugs when the couple recruited them. Henderson reserved his decision until next month.
According to an agreed statement of facts, the boyfriend met the first victim, whose name is protected by a court-ordered publication ban, in the summer of In earlythe boyfriend invited the thenyear-old to his Queen Mary Park apartment to meet his girlfriend, Wallis. They gave the girl crystal meth and began to include her in sexual activity. Eventually, Wallis told the girl she could make money escorting. Wallis was in charge of logistics for the girl, including arranging appointments, transportation, prices and payment.
The couple also provided the girl with a regular supply of meth. In reality, she manipulated the youth, using her pregnancy as an excuse to guilt her into performing.
In response, Wallis locked herself in the bathroom and made sounds like she was throwing up. Edmonton police eventually visited the apartment, where they found Wallis with another girl, aged 15, who they apprehended under child protection legislation. Wallis pleaded guilty earlier this year to sexual exploitation, making child pornography and procuring for sexual services.
Defence lawyer Brian Hurley said 14 years is excessive, especially given the fact his client pleaded guilty. Wallis herself, who has been in custody at the Edmonton Remand Centre for 11 months, made a tearful apology to court. up to receive daily headline news from the Edmonton Journal, a division of Postmedia Network Inc.
