Luton Man Jailed For Sex And Drug Offences
A man has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for drug and prostitution offences following a successful police operation in Bedfordshire.
Alan Fowler, 59, of Brook Street, Luton, was sentenced to a total of 30-months imprisonment on Tuesday (12 May).
Fowler was found guilty of allowing men into his flat for purposes of prostitution. He then supplied the women with class A drugs as payment for providing sexual services.
Chief Inspector Jackie Holmes said:
"We launched an investigation into the offender at the end of last year and we are delighted that he has now pleaded guilty, and as a result will be locked away.
We are absolutely committed to targeting people who exploit women through prostitution and we hope that this sentence shows that this type of crime will not be tolerated.
We are continuing to work hard to safeguard victims affected by this type of crime, as well as improving the quality of life of the communities who are affected by on street sex trade."
Fowler has been given 30-months behind bars for supplying a controlled drug of class A, and 12-months prison for controlling prostitution for gain. He will serve the sentences concurrently.
