By Megan Gillis, QMI Agency
OTTAWA - A 16-year-old Catholic schoolboy “pimped out” his girlfriend as a stripper, demanded she have sex with strangers and punished her with paintball gunshots and Taser blasts, the young woman testified Wednesday.
The boy, now 17, is on trial for charges including human trafficking, living off the avails of prostitution and assault causing bodily harm.
The slim, soft-spoken woman, now 18, testified they started dating in August 2011. Within days she was using fake ID to strip in local clubs, letting “disgusting” men grope her for $20-a-song lap dances.
He had his name tattooed on her neck, bought her towering “stripper heels” and told her to get her hair and nails done because “we want you looking good, babe.”
