A 17-year-old girl acted as a “pimp” for a wealthy Auckland businessman – finding and enticing girls as young as 15 to have sex with him in return for drugs and cash, prosecutors say.
The pair allegedly preyed on methamphetamine-addicted teenagers, the 17-year-old sourcing the girls and delivering them to the man’s multimillion-dollar inner-Auckland property.
The man, 56, and the girl, now aged 20, are on trial in the Auckland District Court over events alleged to have taken place from October 2010 to December 2011.
The Crown says as well as inducing 15-year-old girls to provide “commercial sexual services” in return for methamphetamine, the pair conspired to drug one of the teenagers with the date-rape drug GHB.
A text from the girl read: “She [the alleged victim] is very hard for me to tolerate lol. Let’s spike her please.”
