Daughter gets probation in online sex scheme

A 22-year-old Philadelphia woman is on probation after she and her mother allegedly offered to perform sexual services through Internet advertisements on the Craigslist Web site. Tami Smith pleaded no contest in April to charges of prostitution and conspiracy. She was sentenced Tuesday to three years probation.

Her mother, 39-year-old Traci Young, initially pleaded guilty in the case then withdrew the plea. She will stand trial later this month.

The women had advertised themselves on Craigslist as a sexy mother-daughter team.

Smith's attorney, Dennis Turner, says the two were trying to feed their drug habit by selling their bodies.

An undercover officer responded to one of the ads and the pair was arrested Oct. 2.
