Miami Beach officials have suspended the business license at a local strip club, where police say a 13-year-old girl was forced to dance for money.

Police and the state’s attorney’s office are investigating how the teen, identified only as D.J., ended up at Club Madonna after reportedly running away from home on Dec. 10 before being found by her mother on Jan. 6 near North Miami Avenue, the Miami Herald reports.

Vilbert Jean, 37, Marlene San Vincente, 22, and DeWayne Ward, 18, were arrested on charges of human trafficking, lewd and lascivious conduct on a person under 16, delivering a controlled substance to a person under 18 and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The club’s owner and management have not yet been criminally charged.

"Little skank"?? No child is born perverted or troubled. They're a product of sick adults be they sexually abused, physically abused, used as pawns in twisted divorces or simply of bad parenting. You're quick to judge, KHewitt6920, one whose shoes you have never walked in and know next to zero about. Whether she walked in there or was forced, you do not know what put her there and therefore have no right to judge unless you offer up the cesspools of your own life for equal scrutiny and vilification. Do I hear some skeletons rattling? Not so palatable?? Funny that.

The little skank probably walked in there and asked for a job, then cried "force" when Mommy found out. Typical. She oughta be charged as well.

Any minor involved in a commercial sex act in the United States while under the age of 18 qualifies as a trafficking victim, even if no force, fraud or coercion is involved, under the definition of Severe Forms of Trafficking in Persons, in the U.S. Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000.  There should be no question...or disparaging comments....regarding the illegality of what this girl was forced to do.  Traffickers look for vulnerable young people to exploit.  Runaways are very often their target......if, in fact, this girl had even run away.  Perhaps she hadn't.  Perhaps she was tricked into going with someone who then turned around and exploited her.  It does happen, much more often than we think.  For those who have the time to post negative and jocular comments on this and other stories involving human trafficking and sex crimes against children, why don't you instead address your energies toward educating yourself about these horrific crimes and the effects on their victims and the victims' families.  And remember, anyone with any information/tips on human trafficking, please call 1-888-373-7888 or text your tip to BeFree (233733).  Stand up and be a part of the solution.

You shouldn't have an article like this without photos.

She's 13 right? That's pedophilia ....child rape, trafficking....not contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Her only choice here was to run away from home. Most likely snatched right off the street within 48 hrs after by someone claiming to be her savior who was only thinking of her best interests......but actually their best interests- a product to resell over and over for money for themselves.

Why haven't the owner and/or management been charged? Are they not responsible for document verification?

Why haven't these clowns been charged yet? I see, their legal rights are superior to the girls (yeah right!)  Probably because they have more money.

What kind of ignorant fool calls a 13 year old a "skank"? I don't believe for one minute that these men who took her didn't know she was underage---they just didn't care and clearly only saw her as a way to make a quick buck. She's a kid---she didn't jack about the reality of being in any nightclub. She probably thought it would be fun, just like any child would, before being exposed to the harsh reality of that life. But if course, there's always that ONE idiot like you who will demonize the victim, but won't say anything about the victimizers, who exactly what they were doing. Why should she be charged---the guys who took KNOW it was illegal bringing her into such a place, but they did it anyway. THEY deserved to be charged,period.

@KHewitt6920You have no hope in life. You have no brain in your head. I'm going to go ahead and make the assumption that your head is firmly entrenched up your own ass.

How is it in a confused child's mind ok? Children get tricked by adults, because the adult knows how to manipulate a child. That is why they have laws to protect the children in these cases. Glad you do not represent nothing, but a ignorant skewed point of view of the world. Hope your mom is proud of what she raised, because if you were my son I would be embarrased of you.

@KHewitt6920It is not illegal to be a 'little skank', as you put it. It is illegal, however, for an adult to take advantage of a child, regardless of whether the child was compliant.

@AllisonParks You're pretty much wrong on most of those things. Pedophilia concerns children, not adolescents. It's a completely different term when it regards kids in their teens.

Also, where did the article say she was raped or involved in ANY sexual activity?

You're a bit of a sensationalist, aren't you??

@SheriGibe Exactly there is no way they thought that a 13 year old was over 18. They were probably paid to overlook it.

@kmmalone85 @KHewitt6920 i want to say best post here.well said,i could NOT agre more kmm...

i know also it all starts at home.. my lil sis 18 for the past few days since her dec.31st b-day she is a A+ honor roll student. Do not smoke weed,anything nor alcohol nothing BAD is on her mind.and all start at home with my full time dad/full time wonderful mother,and family... sad to see this but at least the man over 18 are LOCKED UP and will have a record,and the club should stay CLOSED. men like this need to be castrated,then this will NOT happen much as rape murder of lil boys,old people anyone who is murdered,should the suspect be caught and convicted should be castrated or beheaded.

Anything else with U.S.A. Soft Laws will not deter it from happening again.


adios

@victoria123 @SheriGibe I have seen quite a few 13 and 14 year old girls who could pass for 19-20 years old.  I don't mean this to promote child molestation but seriously I know quite a few.

@jmartina808 @ActinaOntorres @ddavel544  I can only assume she has no energy left in which to respond to even more stupidity. I, however, have plenty of it. On behalf of her, and everyone else on here, I'd like to clearly point that you've landed yourself in the same category as ddavel544. Congratulations - you're just another smiling face in the crowd amidst the masses of idiots.

Hate to say it, but you have obviously thought about this way, way too much. Hope the people around you pick up on the red flags

@HateToSayItbut The only ones who separate "hebephilia" from pedophilia are 4Chan users and the catholic church. For reasons which should be obvious to all and sundry.

@BillD@TheThinker1@RobInBriz@AllisonParks I will assume you meant TheThinker1 and in regards to the age you are correct. 13 and under is a felony and it becomes a lesser charge after 14. But you are incorrect in saying everything is wrong with RobInBriz's post.
Pedophilia is a paraphilia involving the sexual attraction to prepubescent children. Hebephilia (which is not actually a normally accepted paraphilia) is a person sexually attracted to children between 11 and 14. Or the more generally accepted term is ephebophila, which is a person sexually attracted to post adolescent teenagers.
And if you were not saying Rob was entirely right then... well oops. you get what i mean. I mean I obviously just wanted to sound smart and stuff. teehee!
