— A 17-year-old Fuquay-Varina girl is charged with talking pictures of a minor and posting them on a website known for prostitution.

Shakirah Octetree, of Bay Tree Street, took pictures of the minor on four separate occasions between March 14 and March 21 at a hotel room on Capital Boulevard, police said. She is also accused of giving the minor condoms “to be used to engage in sex,” according to an arrest warrant.

Shakirah, who was charged with promoting prostitution of a minor, received a $50,000 bond.

    the parents are not relevant. Under NC Statute, 16 year old and above can be charged as an adult and bonded.

    So where is the person who got the hotel room? They should be charged as well. A 17 year old can not get a hotel room on their own. If they did, then the hotel should be charged as well.
