A High River woman is being accused of pimping out young teenagers in Okotoks.
The investigation started after an RCMP School Resource Officer became aware of the teenagers being recruited on social media.
Five girls, between the ages of 13 and 16, were victimized, exploited by adults.
They are now being helped by Child and Family Services as well as Foothills Victim Services.
Investigators say 23-year-old Samantha Pedersen faces 15 charges, including human trafficking, sexual exploitation of a young person and assault.
She will be in court later this month to answer to the charges.
