NEW ORLEANS – After coming across prostitution ads on a website, detectives discovered two women who had recently arrived in New Orleans, along with the 4-year-old son of one of the suspects, according to the New Orleans Police Department.
The woman, a 28-year-old Texas City, Tx. resident, ran an ad on backpage.com soliciting sexual encounters in exchange for monetary gains, police said.
As detectives made the prostitution case on the woman, they noticed another woman leave the hotel room and enter another room on the same floor.
Detectives checked the other room and located Mark Jackson, 34, of Texas City, and the woman they had seen leaving the room. She also had prostitution ads placed on backpage.com.
The 28-year-old said that Jackson had driven the two women to New Orleans for them to work as prostitutes and to strip at different clubs during their stay, police said.
The 28-year-old had brought along her son, who police took into protective custody. She was booked on prostitution charges. Jackson was booked with pandering and trespassing. The other woman was booked with interfering charges and on trespass laws.
