OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. -- Deputies arrested an Osceola County woman they say forced her teen daughters to be prostitutes.

Officials received tips of what 50-year-old Paula Howard of St. Cloud was accused of doing so they set up an undercover sting on Thursday.

Undercover deputies went to a bus stop at Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway in Kissimmee when Howard waved them down.

Then Howard motioned for her 16-, 17- and 18-year-old daughters to approach them and offer sexual acts in return for money before getting into their vehicles.

Howard was busted and arrested on child abuse, child delinquency and prostitution charges.

She is being held at the Osceola County jail on $36,000 bond.

The teens are in protective custody.

Since when do 16 year old + teenagers do what their "mother" tells them? Especially this? There has to be drugs, pimp fear, or simply pure greed involved.
