A single mum who was sent to jail for pimping out a vulnerable teenage girl through a sugar daddy and sugar baby app has lost her appeal.

Monika Rachael Kelly, 21, was jailed last December after she arranged for a then-14-year-old girl - who she met through a mutual friend - to sleep with older men at Auckland hotels in New Zealand. 

Kelly was given a two-and-a-half year sentence, though defence lawyer Ron Mansfield argued for house arrest instead, NZ Herald reported.

Mr Mansfield made the appeal in February and said Kelly's young age had to be taken into consideration as well as her difficult background and responsibilities for her pre-school son.
