BOCA RATON, Fla. - A Boca Raton Police officer is under investigation after his wife was charged with pimping.
Police say they've busted a ring that involved several women and numerous Johns who were meeting at several apartments around the city.
The mayor of Boca Raton says no one has indicated that Boca officer Sam McCoy was involved in the alleged prostitution ring.
McCoy has been placed on administrative leave following his wife's arrest so the department can investigate.
Denise McCoy and her alleged partner in the ring, Sara Marin, were arrested Tuesday after an investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and charged with money laundering and pimping.
FDLE says police learned of the alleged ring from a prostitute who says McCoy threatened to have her deported unless she had sex with as many as twelve men per day for nine months.
The dates were allegedly scheduled on an online forum. For $10, anyone can post an ad for anything on the site.
Under the escort category for Palm Beach, there are pictures of women, descriptions of services offered, and warnings like, "No cops allowed..."
