Authorities have arrested and charged a woman with helping two underage girls with prostitution.

According to court records, Phoenix police say Miesha Tolliver, 26, helped a 16-year-old and a 15-year-old update their profiles on a dating website the pair used to meet men who exchanged money for sex.

Authorities say Tolliver admitted to taking photos of the 16-year-old to post on the website Some of the photos contained images of the teen's buttocks and police say Tolliver also coached the 16-year-old on how to take similar photos of the 15-year-old. 

Tolliver told investigators the girls would make between $100 and $600 each night they worked as prostitutes and the money went into a pot to pay for food, clothing and hotel rooms for the group to live, according to a probable cause statement.

An adult male, who was not identified in court records, would hold onto the money, police said.

Tolliver has been charged with two counts of child prostitution.
