KENOSHA -- Charges are now pending against a Kenosha woman for allegedly prostituting her own daughters. Her arrest was part of a nationwide crackdown on child trafficking.

Store owner Mahmood Hassan tells FOX6 News he knew something was off with the tenants living in the apartment above his shop.

On Friday, Hassan's security cameras caught a heavy police presence.

According to the Milwaukee Division of the FBI, two sisters, ages 16 and 17, were advertised for prostitution on a website allegedly by their own mother. Authorities identified her as 55-year-old Paula Whittaker. They also found a registered sex offender renting a room in the apartment.

"I'm shocked it's sad especially being the age and the mother of two daughters," Hassan said.

The State of Wisconsin saw the most juvenile rescues during a nationwide crackdown of child sex trafficking -- with a total of 11 minors. Their ages ranged from 13 to 17. Four were rescued in Racine and Kenosha, three were rescued in Wauwatosa, another three rescued in Glendale and one was rescued in Milwaukee.


The sisters are among the list of those rescued in Kenosha. At last check, Whittaker has yet to be arraigned in court for her charges.

We do know the sisters had a little brother who was also taken away. According to the FBI, he is part of the 11 minors rescued. He is being considered a victim in this case.

Whittaker is expected to make a court appearance in the coming days.

    To think they rescued only 11 kids?but justice point has money to help these pedophiles call in ,so the location of sickos to the amount of kids rescued is not adding up.justice point said they are only able to help the predators and not their responsibility to help the victims.f()& justice point and whoever funds these dumb contact ho s .i call to report they don’t reprimand the abuser.justice point enables criminals instead of re reporting their no contact order abuses.thanks justice pint I hope karma screws you

    The person I know gets $1000 state money each month, plus $200 for her daughter and $200 for her son. Daughter was at Indian high school with a bag of pot 2 years ago, and son buying a BB gun in Washington Middle School, and when my $200 tablet disappeared out the door in someone’s laundry basket the cops called her up to ask her if she took it like I said she did. Daughter and son complained their $200 money was spent on beer and pot with the vagrant center’s men who would stay the night.
