Valerie Fairman of 16 and Pregnant fame has been arrested on charges of prostitution. It was Thursday when Fairman and seven other women were rounded up as part of a multi-agency sting in Delaware. The former reality show star was arrested for agreeing to perform a sexual act for cash.

Fairman, of course, didn't realize it was an undercover officer she agreed to 'service.' At just 21, she was the youngest of the group of women arrested.

According to a statement from the Delaware State Police, the sting areas "were targeted in response to numerous citizen complaints of prostitution and other quality of life crimes that have been occurring.”

While appearing on season two of 16 and Pregnant, Valerie Fairman was known for some rather volatile fights with her boyfriend. One fight involved convincing him that he was the father of her daughter, Nevaeh Lyn.

Valerie Fairman was issued a summons to appear in court at a later date. It is uncertain when that hearing will be scheduled.

This arrest for prostitution isn't the first brush Valerie Fairman has had with the law. She was reportedly arrested back in 2011 for assaulting her adoptive mother, and was arrested again in 2012 for three misdemeanors and three felonies, which included two counts of theft by unlawful taking of a moveable property (she stole a car), and one count of receiving stolen property.

It's uncertain at this point who is caring for Valerie Fairman's daughter Nevaeh, but it's quite likely she is in someone other than her mother's care.
