crimeandpunishment writes: A girl who ran away from home and became a prostitute at 14 is now suing a media company over sex ads on one of its websites. The lawsuit says Village Voice Media knowingly allowed the girl's pimp to advertise her services on the site backpage.com. The girl's attorney says "We're alleging they absolutely know that prostitution is on the website, that minors are being posted on the website".
