November 18, 2010 - 5:21 PM

Trenton, N.J. (AP) - Prosecutors have dropped all sex-related charges against a 15-year-old New Jersey girl who was accused of selling her 7-year-old stepsister to a group of men and boys for sex at a party.

The Trenton teen was charged in March with aggravated sexual assault, criminal restraint, terroristic threats, promoting prostitution and endangering the welfare of a minor. She pleaded guilty in juvenile court to child endangerment this week and was sentenced to a year in juvenile detention.

Prosecutors confirmed the plea Thursday.

Two adults and three boys ages 13, 14 and 17 also have been charged in the case.

Superior Court Judge F. Lee Forrester has ordered the teenage girl to have no contact with her stepsister and to cooperate with prosecutors in the other cases.
