A WO­MAN ad­mit­ted lur­ing a teenage girl to a mo­tel for a babysit­ting job and then hold­ing her hostage for more than a week – forc­ing her to take drugs and have sex with up to five men a day.

Adria Regn, 28, of Mount Holly, New Jersey, pleaded guilty to a charge of con­spir­acy to fa­cil­i­tate hu­man traf­fick­ing.

She could face five years in a state prison when she is sen­tenced on Jan­uary 5.

Regn ( left) and her 19- year- old boyfriend Christo­pher White, of Eas­tamp­ton, New Jersey, were ar­rested after al­legedly hold­ing the 17- year- old vic­tim at a mo­tel against her will and pimp­ing her out for 10 suc­ces­sive days.

The cou­ple had tricked the girl by ask­ing her to watch Regn’s two young chil­dren, say po­lice.

When the vic­tim ar­rived at the mo­tel, they instead pumped her full of metham­phetamine and forced her to have sex with men – some­times as many as five a day.

Regn told the girl that she needed her to work as a pros­ti­tute so she could make money to sup­port her kids, ac­cord­ing to cops.

She and White al­legedly moved the teen to var­i­ous mo­tels in the area be­fore she even­tu­ally managed to es­cape one night while they slept.

White and Regn were ini­tially of­fered a 20- year plea deal but the state de­cided to drop it to five years for Regn, while White is due in court later this month.

Regn had been fac­ing ad­di­tional charges of hu­man traf­fick­ing of a mi­nor and or­gan­ised street crime, but those charges were dropped.
