Another case of Child prostitution. What a shame..Endangered the life of kids for their own benefit.

Pennsylvania Woman Charged With Taking 12-Year-Old Boy to Prostitutes

DONORA, Pa. — A woman was accused of taking a 12-year-old boy to two houses of prostitution and paying for him to have sex there.

Linda Van Pool, 36, of Donora, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, corruption of minors and other crimes.

Van Pool is the second person charged in the case. In May, Kathleen Waggoner, also of Donora, was arrested on the child endangerment and corruption charges.

Waggoner, a bartender, gave Van Pool the money to pay for his time with at least two prostitutes, police said. Van Pool is charged with actually taking the boy to the prostitutes.

Both women have pleaded not guilty. Nobody answered the phone at Pool's home Friday, and Waggoner did not immediately return a message requesting comment.
