4th adult charged in child prostitution ring


WAUSAU (WAOW) -- A fourth person has now been charged in a Wausau child prostitution ring.

Prosecutors have charged Dominick D. West, 19, with nine counts relating to his role in child prostitution.

Three other adults—Barbi L. Metzger, Nicole K. Riehle, and Darrell D. Vaughn—have also been charged.

West appeared in court Wednesday morning.

According to police documents, West and several other adults facilitated child prostitution by setting up jobs, and driving underage girls to those jobs. Police say those jobs happened at customers' homes, and at other locations like the Ponderosa Motel in Wausau.

In addition to this case, Newsline 9 has learned West is also facing sex charges in Langlade County. Those charges include sexual assault of a child. That case is still open.

An arraignment for Dominick West has been scheduled for June 15 in Marathon County Circuit Court. Meantime, West is in the Marathon County Jail on $10,000 bond.
