(Scroll down for video) A woman is fighting to get custody of her children, who were taken away from her after she was arrested for prostitution.
Ailcia Stapleton said that her former boyfriend, who was a police officer, tried to pimp her out through Craigslist in California.
Despite this, Officer Robert Knight used her work against her in family court, saying that it made her an unfit mother. The judge awarded him custody of their children.
Stapleton admitted that she legally works at the Bunny Ranch brothel, but she never did any sexual work in California, where prostitution is illegal.
Knight resigned from his job after it was discovered that he attempted to pimp out his girlfriend, police said.
Fresno police said that officer Knight posted advertisements on Craigslist, looking to get work for his girlfriend as a prostitute.
He communicated with a potential client, who turned out to be an undercover officer.
Stapleton was arrested for prostitution and her former police officer boyfriend is facing charges of aiding in prostitution and federal sex trafficking.
