ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - An alleged street gang member accused of running a prostitution ring that recruited high school girls is set to enter a plea.
 
    
Federal prosecutors say Justin Strom, of Lorton, is due in U.S. District Court in Alexandria on Tuesday for a plea hearing.
 
    
Prosecutors say Strom was the leader of a street gang that threatened girls if they refused to participate in the prostitution ring.
 
    
He was charged along with four other men. Prosecutors say the other defendants have pleaded guilty.
 
    
According to an FBI affidavit, the defendants are members of a Fairfax-based offshoot of the Crips street gang known as the Underground Gangster Crips.
