Woman charged with prostitution after calling police to complain of treatment by her pimp

ASSOCIATED PRESS

WEST HAVEN, Conn. — A woman has been charged with prostitution in Connecticut after calling police to complain about how she was being treated by a pimp.

Police say they did not find the pimp when they arrived at a Super 8 Motel in West Haven on Sunday, but they did find 35-year-old Jennifer Lowery with a man they describe as a customer.

Police charged Lowery with prostitution and 60-year-old Ricard Burford of New Haven with patronizing a prostitute.

Police say Lowery told them she thought it would take police longer to show up, so she decided to conduct some business while waiting.

Attempts to reach the pair for comment today were unsuccessful. There was no answer today at a phone number listed for Burford, and no phone listing for Lowery.
