You just can't make this stuff up.

Teen faces felony for promoting prostitution
News Tribune

A Jefferson City teen was charged Monday with a Class D felony for his alleged involvement in a prostitution incident Sunday.

Terrill L. Blackmon, 19, was being held in Cole County jail on $5,000 bond late Tuesday morning. The other two people involved have not yet been charged.

According to a police probable cause statement, Blackmon flagged down a man driving in the 400 block of Lafayette Street at about 11 a.m. Sunday and asked him if he would pay $30 to have sex with a woman.

The men eventually agreed on a $20 payment, with the man refusing Blackmon's request for a $5 advance payment, the statement said.

The woman agreed and got into the car with the man and left the area.

Five minutes later, an argument ensued over birth control and the man asked the woman to get out of the car.

She refused and said she wanted at least $10 for her time or she was going to tell the police.

The man then allegedly said "No, you didn't give me what I wanted," and honked at a nearby police car.

After talking to them, police arrested the man, woman and Blackmon.

Blackmon reportedly told police the woman was supposed to rob the man and not get into his car.
