Samara Charlotin, 19, and Acacia Friedman, 23, are accused of being high-priced hookers after the alleged pimp, Maury Noun, tried to orchestrate a deal with an undercover police officer, according to authorities.
According to a police report, Noun met with an undercover officer at a hotel restaurant to discuss the terms. Noun allegedly would receive $3,000 for making the deal. Cops say he asked for $5,000 to have sex with the girls.
After cops say the officer paid Noun the fee, the 21-year-old allegedly brought Charlotin and Friedman into a room, where police arrested the trio.
Friedman and Charlotin were charged with engaging in prostitution. Charlotin faces additional charges of drug possession.
At a bond hearing, Charlotin told a judge she was a biology major at Florida International University.
“Maybe it is a good thing you got arrested. Maybe you will change your way… lead a new path. Focus on school. You’ll do well,” the judge reportedly told her.
