A man was arrested on charges of child endangerment for holding his baby as her mother was having sex with another man nearby.
25-year-old Derohn Wilburn of Detroit, Michigan, acted as a pimp and held his baby in a motel room in Ohio, while the child’s mother was with a man who paid for sexual services.
Wilburn pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution and child endangerment. He was sentenced to 18 months probation. Judge Amy Corrigall Jones also ordered him to have no contact with the child and the child’s mother, who was identified as Melissa Coleman.
Coleman, 26, of Akron, was charged with child endangering and prostitution. Copley police said that the baby was handed over to her family member. The baby was unhurt.
Jesse Davis, 29, of Munroe Falls, called the police, saying that he was threatened in a room at the Motel 6 on Rothrock Road.
Davis told police that he responded to an advertisement on backpage.com, which was published by Coleman. When he arrived at the motel, the woman was not the same as the one in the online photo.
Coleman demanded $50 more than agreed upon online. Davis said that he left, but then reconsidered and returned to the motel. Wilburn then came out of the bathroom with the baby and told Davis that he had to pay $20 more, for a total of $170.
Wilburn, who admitted to police to being a pimp, had the money when police arrived.
