GREENVILLE, SC (WYFF) -

An Upstate man is accused of pimping two teenage girls and helping them build a website to promote themselves as prostitutes.

Greenville police said 20-year-old Patrick Daniel Tranter took a 13-year-old girl and 16-year-old girl to meet two men who they did not know were undercover detectives.

Police said the girls agreed to exchange sexual favors for money to the undercover detectives and they were arrested for prostitution.

One of the girls then told police that Tranter helped them make a webpage to promote themselves as prostitutes and encouraged and supported them in doing so.

Tranter is charged with three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, two counts of pimp/aid or abetting prostitution and two counts of promoting prostitution of a minor.

He was booked into the Greenville County Detention Center on a bond of $30,940.
