Derrick was charged with two cases of Compelling Prostitution. Allegedly, he would pick the women up, drive them to the location, and when the prostitution was conducted at the house, Derrick would stay in the back with his gun in case the “trick” got out of hand. The women would charge $100-$250 for sexual acts and would be stripped searched when finished to make sure they were not hiding any money. Derrick had a prior felony conviction, had been to prison, and was not eligible for probation. It was win or go to prison. On the morning of the trial, I announced ready and when the Judge asked the State if they were ready, they dismissed both cases.
