LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — An arrest warrant was issued for a Lafayette man accused of promoting prostitution.

According to prosecutors, Terrell Jones was sentenced to four years in prison Monday but he failed to appear in court. This lead to the judge forfeiting his bond and issued the warrant.

The case dates back to December of 2016 when Lafayette Police Department officers responded to an online ad for sexual activity with a woman at a hotel.

The victim told police Jones and another man set up her meetings with clients, four to five times a week.
She says they took all the money and threatened to hurt her family if she refused to work.
