Audelin Pierre, 34, is now the fourth person arrested in the case of a 13-year-old runaway who ended up working as a prostitute and a stripper at Miami Beach's Club Madonna.
He's now charged with human trafficking, procuring a minor for prostitution, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and delivering a controlled substance to a minor, and is being held without bond.
"D.J.," the girl at the center of the case, ran away from home in December with two 15-year-old girls before they were taken to a house where they met the original three suspects, Vilbert Jean, 36, Marlene San Vincente, 22, and DeWayne Ward, 18.
According to the arrest report, Pierre was the man who first met the three girls and took them to the Miami home.

At the home, the girl was coerced into having sex with a man for money. Pierre brought that customer to the home.
The girl, however, refused to continue having sex for money after Pierre kept the money for himself. Instead, with the help of dancer San Vincente, she began working at Club Madonna.
Club Madonna remains under investigation, and its business permit has been revoked. Club reps say they have no record of the girl working there, but admit she might have either bypassed management or used a fake ID.
