Suspect Pleads Guilty in Prostitution Case with Arkansas Ties

AUGUST 10, 2004 - Posted at 8:12 a.m. CDT

 

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - One of 19 suspects in a multistate prostitution ring pleaded guilty Monday, the day his trial was scheduled to start.

25-year-old Kevin Scott of Spencer, Oklahoma, pleaded guilty to one of the four counts issued by a federal grand jury.  Authorities said the other three counts will be dismissed when Scott is sentenced.

Scott said he had tricked a 13-year-old girl into working as a prostitute in Texas by telling her she was getting into a car to "go party."

He also faces other charges relating to prostitution.

The FBI led an investigation into Oklahoma City-based pimps trafficking young prostitutes to Texas, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Pennsylvania and other states.  The case led to nine federal indictments and ten state warrants issued in May.
