GIRLS PIMPED IN CYBER SEX RING, SAY COPS
Shawn Michael Iyoupe is charged with one count of sexual assault, and nine additional counts of making child pornography, nine of possessing child pornography and four charges of trying to obtain the sexual services of someone under 18. Nine girls, none older than 17, had their pictures plastered all over the Internet and men would bid for their sexual services. Their pimp, Iyoupe, would put them into taxis in the middle of the night for a sexual encounter with the highest bidder. Iyoupe's home computer was seized after police were told of the girls stories and scoured the hard drive looking for additional victims. They had identified nine girls, all 16 and 17, when they were finished. Iyoupe and his partner, Shawn David Walsh, 26, were charged with the provincial equivalent of promoting prostitution. No additional charges were filed against Walsh.
