What is the world coming to? James Parham, an elderly man in Englewood, New Jersey, is being accused of running a prostitution ring out of a senior home living facility. According to police, the operation employed both older residents who lived at the facility, and younger women who did not.
Parham, 75, and his alleged co-conspirator, Cheryl Chaney, 66, are also being accused of allowing the use of drugs in their units. Both are being charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a nuisance.
Police say drug use was not only happening within the units, but also in the hallways, stairwells, and lobby of the senior living facility. Some residents said they feared for their lives because of the criminal element at the complex. One even told local reporters that he was aware of the prostitution ring.
So far, no prostitutes were arrested.
