Two people appeared in court on Thursday after being accused of kidnapping and forcing a young girl into prostitution.

Marquis Sweet and Domaniece Roy are charged in the crime.

Last month, a 16-year-old girl from California told officers the couple kidnapped her from Las Vegas and brought her to Texas.

She claims she was forced into a life of prostitution.

She says she was able to finally escape one night while the two were sleeping from an Odessa motel.

When officers went to arrest the two, they found Roy's four year old child with them in the room.      

Sweet later admitted to having sex with the young girl.
