Man admits promoting prostitution

AFAYETTE, Ind. — Cornelius Maurice Thompson recruited women to be hookers in Lafayette, then drove them to their appointments and took a percentage of the women’s earnings, which makes him guilty of promoting prostitution

Thompson, 34, pleaded guilty to that charge, as well as being an habitual offender, invasion of privacy and being an habitual traffic violator, according to a sentencing summary provided by Tippecanoe County Prosecutor Patrick Harrington.

On Thursday, Tippecanoe Circuit Judge Thomas Busch sentenced Thompson to 15 years in prison for those crimes. None of his sentence was suspended.

Thompson has 23 prior convictions dating back to 2001 in several Indiana and Illinois counties, and one county in Arkansas, according to a sentencing summary.
