Ky. police officer arrested in prostitution investigation

Associated Press 

Authorities say a Kentucky police officer has been arrested as part of an investigation into an alleged prostitution ring.

Kentucky State Police said Wednesday that Oak Grove police Sgt. Benjamin R. Walden was among three people arrested after state police received a complaint about a female being held against her will at a motel in the southwestern Kentucky town.

State police say investigators found that three females were being held against their will and forced to have sex with several men.

Police say the 43-year-old Walden, of Clarksville, Tennessee, faces multiple charges, including first-degree sodomy, first-degree rape, fourth-degree assault, permitting prostitution and tampering with a witness. Online jail records don’t list an attorney for him.

The other two people arrested are charged with unlawful imprisonment, human trafficking and promoting prostitution.

And in Houston a police officer caught in a prostitution sting appeared in court on Thursday for the first time, according to court documents.

Jermaine Tyree Owens was arrested 7:25 p.m. Sept. 21 agreeing to have sex with an undercover officer at a Motel 6, court documents said.

"The important thing is that all the evidence has the all clear, and we're gathering it, and until we know exactly what the state is saying, it's very difficult to understand where they're going with all of this. We're cautiously optimistic we'll get this resolved and the great state of Texas will see the error of their ways," Owens' attorney, Mark Hochglaube, said.

Owens is charged with soliciting prostitution.

Owens is 13-year veteran of the Houston Police Department, assigned to the west side patrol.

Police said Owens has been relieved of his duty during the investigation.
