Police harass a man they Suspected of pimping in N.J., SMH
This is a perfect example of a man being harassed. If you read this article below you see that there was no complaint made about this man and the woman he was with had nothing bad to say about him. But somehow they still took the man to jail just so he could pay a thousand dollar bail. And this is what Americas tax dollars are spent on. Cops wasting time. This is just another tttempt at the police and media trying to tarnish a black mans name. This man has done nothing to no one. SMH #TooRealForTV
Jersey City – Kearny police arrested a Massachusetts man on allegations that he was pimping out three women on a road trip with stops planned in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Miami, and Las Vegas.
Leshawn Stallworth, 31, of Brockton, Massachusetts, was arrested Sunday night and charged with promoting prostitution, theft, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, Kearny Police Sgt. Michael Gonzalez said today.
Police pulled Stallworth over for a motor vehicle violation on the 100 block of Schuyler Avenue at 10:30 p.m. Their investigation led to the drug charges and the discovery that Stallworth was also in possession of identification cards for several women, Gonzalez said.
Keeping women’s identification is sometimes done as a means of controlling prostitutes, Gonzalez added.
Stallworth was taken to the station and the ongoing investigation led police to believe he and three women had left from Rhode Island. On their way to New Jersey, the women engaged in prostitution in Connecticut and they were planning to continue their road trip to Florida and Nevada, Gonzalez said.
Police believe Stallworth would meet homeless women or women in need of money who worked in strip clubs. He would provide them with food, clothing and shelter in exchange for the money they made going on up to 10 “call outs” per day and earning up to $200 each time, Gonzalez said.
Officers allege the group would set up in hotels and get calls from johns who would get their contact information online. Stallworth would then drive the women to meet the johns and pick them up afterward, police allege.
A 19-year-old woman was with Stallworth when he was arrested. No other women were located.
Stallworth was also issued motor vehicle tickets.
Stallworth made his first court appearance on the criminal charges in Central Judicial Processing Monday in Jersey City via video link from Hudson County jail. A judge who hears special victims cases set bail at $10,000 with a 10 percent cash option, which Stallworth posted Monday, according to jail records.
