Stephanie Olean Chapman, 28, of Fairfax, was sentenced to 14 years in prison, and her boyfriend and accomplice, Ronnie Pierre Holmes, 30, of no fixed address, was sentenced to 11 years, by United States District Judge Liam O’Grady.

Both were also sentenced to five years of supervised release following the completion of their sentences, according to a statement from the Washington field office of the FBI.

According to court records and evidence presented during Chapman's trial, between Feb. 27, 2013 and March 12, 2013, Chapman and Holmes met a 15-year-old girl and recruited her to be a prostitute for them. 

Authorities say Chapman and Holmes took sexually suggestive photographs of the girl, sent the photographs to potential customers and posted the photographs on a web site. 

The couple drove the girl to meet with customers at locations in Virginia, Maryland, and D.C., and took half of the money paid to the girl after she engaged in sex with customers for money, according to the FBI.

The Fairfax County Police Department and the FBI together investigated the case.
