A Philadelphia woman has been convicted of conspiracy and promoting prostitution in what authorities say was a mother-daughter operation. Thirty-nine-year-old Traci Young could face up to two years in prison when she is sentenced on Oct. 30. She was found guilty Monday.

Her daughter, 23-year-old Tami Smith, pleaded no contest to the same charges in April. She was sentenced in June to probation.

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

Smith's attorney, Dennis Turner, has said 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 last October.
