King County prosecutors charged a 20-year-old Seattle woman on Monday with two counts of promoting the commercial sex abuse of a minor for allegedly pimping out two teenage girls.
Jacqueline Oliver — who has “Lady Thug” tattooed on her right thigh and calls herself “Jackie Lavish” on Facebook — was arrested outside a Kent motel on Wednesday night, according to charging documents. She remains in the King County Jail in lieu of $200,000 bail, jail records show.
Earlier this month, a 15-year-old girl was interviewed by an FBI agent assigned to the local Innocence Lost task force, which focuses on sex-trafficking of juveniles, while she was detained at the King County Youth Services Center, according to charging papers. The papers don’t say why the girl was in juvenile detention.
The girl said she had engaged in prostitution and told the agent she was advertised for sex on backpage.com in ads posted by Oliver, the papers say. Oliver also used her phone number as a contact number in the ads and “would take calls from prospective tricks and try to figure out which girl they wanted,” according to the charges.

The FBI agent contacted Kent police after learning from the 15-year-old that Oliver planned to relocate from a motel in SeaTac to a motel in Kent, the papers say.
Kent detectives found the Facebook page for “Jackie Lavish” and were able to identify Oliver in a police database, according to the papers. They then found five different ads on backpage.com, including ads for “two girl specials,” listing Oliver’s phone number as a contact, the papers say.
An undercover detective set up a “date,” and agreed to pay $150 for an hour with two girls at a Kent motel, according to the papers. Around 8:40 p.m., detectives saw a vehicle with five females inside pull into the parking lot. The 16-year-old girl and a 21-year-old woman entered the motel, both wearing skintight clothing, the papers say.
The two were detained in the lobby and said “they were there to have sex for money,” according to the papers.
Other detectives stopped the vehicle and identified Oliver as the front-seat passenger, the papers say.
The 16-year-old allegedly was working for Oliver, according to the papers. The 21-year-old woman with her had agreed to do a “duo” date with the younger girl, according to the papers.
A 17-year-old girl was also in the car, which was driven by a 21-year-old woman, the papers say.
The 16-year-old later told police that she and the 15-year-old girl who was interviewed by the FBI agent both gave their money to Oliver to rent motel rooms, according to the papers.
“Oliver does not have a job but gets food and money from the state for her daughter,” the papers say.
The 16-year-old, who called Oliver her girlfriend, told detectives she “doesn’t need to work” but that “if she wants to be with Oliver she needs the money to get a place to stay,” according to the papers.
