MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. - Detectives have arrested a Bradenton man they say had sexual relations with a 15-year-old and sold her for sex.
38-year-old Elroy Johnson was arrested Monday and charged with Human trafficking, three counts of Lewd and Lascivious Battery on a Child, and Possession of a Photo of Sexual Performance by a Child.
The victim told investigators that Johnson, known to her as "Coby", gave her a ride in his SUV and gave her marijuana. She says Johnson took photos of her and posted them on a classified ad website.
He offered to bring her a guy to have sex with for $200, and they would split the money. The victim says she didn't have sex with the man, but he paid her anyway.
