Youth counselor from Jamaica pimped teen: DA

KEW GARDENS — A Jamaica youth counselor was convicted Monday of using a 15-year-old girl as be his sex slave, the Queens district attorney’s office said.

It took a jury 10 minutes to convict Terrell “Fresh” Mitchell, 26, of 134th Street, on several charges, including promoting prostitution and endangering the welfare of a child, DA Brown said.

Mitchell, who worked as a youth counselor, picked up an unidentified 15-year-old runaway teen and made her his prostitute, according to the DA.

After collecting her up from the girl’s home March 5, 2008, the pimp fed her and gave her marijuana to smoke before taking her to the corner of 107th Street and Liberty Avenue to solicit men for oral sex, the DA said. Mitchell would reap the profits from the prostitution, according to Brown.

On March 5, the girl and another unidentified teen were seen by undercover officers in a car with Mitchell at 153rd Street and Jamaica Avenue, Brown said.

One of the teens told the officers she needed money from Mitchell for a sex transaction and the other teen had him listed as “Daddy” on her cell phone, the DA said.
