SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

An ad on BackPage.com portrayed a woman as a working girl, a prostitute.  It said, "I am a petite, French, red haired vixen. All I want is to make your every dream come true."

That was false advertising to say the least, a bold-faced lie, because police say she was a prisoner for the pleasure of others, drugged, chocked, beaten and held captive at a hotel for several days and forced to have sex around the clock with multiple men, whoever would pay the price.

26-year-old Deante Brown of Detroit, also known as "Blackface," is behind bars and facing felony sex trafficking charges.

SEMCAC, the Southeast Michigan Crimes Against Children Task Force, is always checking BackPage.com and other sites looking for criminals lurking with cruel intent, which led them to the Victory Hotel on Telegraph near Nine Mile on Tuesday. An undercover cop set up a sting operation.

The alleged victim is a former teaching student at Eastern Michigan University down on her luck and homeless, hotel hopping with no one and nowhere to turn after an illness and amputation left her addicted to painkillers. Detectives say she met this man at the hotel and he manipulated her and exploited her already bad situation making it even worse.

    Dance raves for kids at NYC's hot clubs

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the federal prosecutor investigating political payback allegations involving the Republican's administration are both set to speak at a prisoner re-entry conference on Thursday.
    Former NBA player Jayson Williams says trying to re-enter society after serving time for shooting a limousine driver was more difficult than being in prison.
