Lisa goes behind bars in Oklahoma City to meet Greg Anderson, a career criminal who's currently serving eight years for promoting prostitution. Police say Anderson was the head of a prostitution ring being run out of an Oklahoma City truck stop and had at least seven women working for him. Three of his prostitutes were 13, 14 and 15 years old. Anderson claims the girls lied about their ages, and says he didn't find out they were children until his arrest. FBI Special Agent Mike Beaver says that's highly unlikely.

"The pimps do actively recruit the young," Special Agent Beaver says. "In the subculture, the young child, sadly, brings more money, and the pimps know that."

Anderson admits that greed—not concern for the women—motivated him to become a pimp. "I wanted the money," Anderson says. "I overlooked the moral ramifications of it for their money. Families think I'm despicable."
