women, who initially appeared underage but were determined to be adults, were offered temporary shelter and counseling in an effort to deter them from a life of sexual exploitation, Sawyer said. Their names were withheld.

One of the five women was from out-of-state. The investigation into how they were lured into prostitution was continuing, he said.
