Sixth person arrested in sex case

Sheriff's deputies have arrested a sixth person in an investigation into teenage prostitution.

Jean Theagene, 41, of 10329 Birdwatch Drive was charged Thursday with three counts of lewd and lascivious acts on a minor after a 15-year-old girl told investigators that she and Theagene had sexual intercourse at a motel on Nebraska Avenue, Lt. Rod Reder said.

Detectives began investigating in January after discovering that a 13-year-old girl had been advertised on the Internet as a prostitute. The runaway had been living in an apartment with the man who advertised her, Shawn Robert Martin, detectives said.

Others arrested include Tampa lawyer David Russell Stahl, Carrollwood physician Lee Kadosa and Jessica Cortes, a 19-year-old who is charged with procuring minor girls for prostitution.
