HOMEWOOD — A Birmingham woman has been arrested in connection to a prostitution investigation in Homewood.
Homewood authorities acted on a possible human trafficking operation at a hotel in the Oxmoor Road area, resulting in the arrest of 20-year-old Diashe Grant, who faces charges of first-degree promoting prostitution.
Grant is in custody at the Jefferson County Jail on a $20,000 bond after police say she prostituted an 18-year-old female for profit.
The 18-year-old victim was located and taken to a hospital where she was put in contact with a victims’ advocacy group. According to AL.com, police say there was evidence to suggest the teen was being held against her will.
