A Long Beach mother and son are charged with teaming up to pimp out an underage girl.

Authorities say Sharilyn Kae Anderson, 45, and Joshua Jerome Davis, 22, began communicating with the 14-year-old girl three years ago.

The pair allegedly put the teenage girl to work as a prostitute at several Southern California hotels and Las Vegas casinos.

If they're convicted of child sex trafficking, Anderson and Davis face at least 15 years in prison.
