Convicted pimp faces child sex trafficking indictment

A convicted pimp who was released from prison in August has been indicted on child sex trafficking charges after he was arrested at an Atlantic County motel in December, authorities said.

Marcus E.  Tukes, 47, of Bridgeton, was indicted on charges of trafficking two adults and a child as well as child endangerment and possession of cocaine.

Tukes and Courtney E. Glose, 31, of Brigantine, were arrested in December at the Knight’s Inn in Absecon by the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force, the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office said in a news release.

Tukes spent more than two years in prison after previously being convicted of promoting prostitution and drug dealing. He remains held at the Atlantic County Jail.

Glose faces a third-degree child endangerment charge and was released pending trial.
