Connie Marie Behymer, a 34 year old homeless woman, pleaded not guilty to charges that she brought her two daughters, ages 6 and 9 at the time, to Las Vegas and forced them into prostitution.  She is fighting the federal charges relating to her children.  She was arrested in Oklahoma City and transported here this week.  The children are staying with a relative.  FBI agents were told by the girl that they were forced to perform oral and straight sex and at least one of them was sodomized.  Medical reports said the girls suffered traumatic injuries from repeated sexual molestation.  Behymer remains in the North Las Vegas Detention Center without bail.
