He told her he would keep her safe. She told him he was under arrest.
In a probable cause affidavit filed earlier this month, the detective wrote that she was working undercover to investigate a complaint about prostitution in a nearby alley when year-old Lamont King yelled at her to come over to him. After asking for a light, King wanted to know what she was doing. Explore the data on the map below to see every prostitution arrest in Indianapolis in King, she said, suggested she needed someone to protect her.
King then began walking westbound, the detective said, and promised her that he knew everyone in the neighborhood and would be able to get her customers. When King then said he had a house nearby they could work out of, according to the affidavit, the detective aled for her backup and King was placed under arrest.
Once he was in handcuffs, the detective explained that she was an officer, and that King was under arrest. Like trying to sell somebody and make some money? The cases, according to Sgt. We used to look at Back as a trap for human traffickers and pimps. The legislation was hailed as a win by groups that fight sex trafficking, particularly of minors.
But Daggy says it also removed one of the best tools police had for finding trafficking cases. A Call 6 Investigation in May found that, in Indianapolis, women were 20 times more likely to be arrested for prostitution than men were for promoting prostitution. InMarion County prosecutors filed just four cases on promoting prostitution charges.
The ad ended with a phone with an Indianapolis area code. An IMPD detective responded to the ad. Before he arrived, he received a text asking if he was law enforcement.
He said he was not. He then received a text directing him to the Fairfield Inn on West 86 th Street. When he arrived, the detective spotted a man, later identified as Jason Young, sitting in a black sedan smoking.
He needed to go to the InTown suites next door. By the time he got back to the parking lot, Young was gone.
Another detective confirmed Young had relocated to the parking lot of the InTown Suites. In a probable cause affidavit later filed in the case, the detective noted that prostitution promoters, or pimps, often serve as lookouts to ensure the customer is not a police officer.
When the detective got to InTown Suites he was directed to Room There, a woman who identified herself as Britni opened the door.
As he did, he gave the al for other officers to move in and arrest Britni. As soon as police moved in, Young sped out of the parking lot. Two other detectives pulled him over a short distance away and placed him under arrest.
Once both were in custody, the detectives asked Britni who Young was to her. She said he was her boyfriend, and that he was the one who arranges the meetups.
She also told them all the money she makes — minus a small amount for expenses for her children — goes to Young. If the detective had been a real john, she said, the money she made that night would have gone to Young to pay for another night at the hotel. Britni told them she had made it for him through prostitution.
All of the money was seized to be held for forfeiture. Young pleaded guilty in April to promoting prostitution, a level 5 felony, and was sentenced to 3 years in community corrections with days of jail credit.
Britni pleaded guilty in January to one count of prostitution and was sentenced to time served for 54 days already spent in the Marion County Jail. But I do think that it comes with its dangers too. Jeffers, the founder of the nonprofit Grit Into Grace, works with women who are engaged in street prostitution in Indianapolis to help them get out of the life.
The streets come with their own set of challenges. Over there, where IMPD works the bulk of its prostitution cases every year, addiction drives the sex trade, not pimps.
I would say one I know of is just an alcoholic. Back was shut down while one woman Jeffers works with was being held at the Marion County Jail.
We made over 60 arrests and caught four human trafficking cases during the Super Bowl. The guy up there partied with her, wined and dined her, and then put her into prostitution.
You would think it was written today, but this book is over years old. This article is the third in a series documenting the sex trade in Indianapolis.

The detective asked what her cut of the business would be. King nodded his head.
