Warrant issued for woman charged with being a pimp

Staff writerSeptember 3, 2013 

A warrant has been issued for a 23-year-old woman accused of pimping a woman on Backpage.com.

Pierce County prosecutors have charged Brieanna Benning with first-degree promoting prostitution. Her brother, 28-year-old Anthony Britt, has pleaded not guilty to the same charge.

Britt was arrested during a prostitution sting in Lakewood July 24 and told police his sister was the one pimping the victim, court records show.

Benning has not yet been arrested. Authorities say she has been picked up during several undercover prostitution stings this year.
