13-year-old girl nicknamed ‘breadmaker’ rescued from prostitution ring; four charged with sex trafficking a minor

MIAMI – A 13-year-old Florida girl was forced into having sex acts with hundreds of men in only a few weeks by sex traffickers who nicknamed her “breadmaker” based upon how much money she made them, according to police.

The girl told authorities she ran away from home in May, according to court documents cited by the Sun-Sentinel. The documents said she met a 19-year-old named Racquel Bijou, who reportedly got her involved in the prostitution business.

Police said Bijou arranged for the teen to meet with men, some as old as 50.

Bijou later brought in two associates: 22-year-old Jeremiah Horenstein and 25-year-old Ashton Lewinson, according to police.

Prosecutors said Horenstein and Lewinson posted pictures of the teen on illicit websites that advertised commercial sex acts.

On multiple occasions, the trio reportedly drove the girl to hotel rooms where she had sex with hundreds of men in less than a month, according to police.

Court documents suggested that the girl had a falling out with Horenstein and allegedly ended up being pimped by another woman, 27-year-old Souprina Blanc.

The girl’s family had alerted authorities within days of her disappearance, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Police used the girl’s phone records to track down a Miami residence, where they rescued her. In the home, they found Blanc and two unidentified people.



Bijou and Horenstein were arrested in August, and Lewinson was arrested in November, per the Sun-Sentinel. They are all being held without bond.

Blanc was arrested last week and appeared in magistrate court in Miami on Tuesday. She is being held without bond.

All four are charged with sex trafficking a minor and face life in prison if convicted.
