An attorney-at-law accused of operating what is believed to be a prostitution ring, has been charged by the police.

He is 45 year old Lennox Gayle, who is the Deputy Chairman of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel. Mr Gayle was charged last evening by investigators attached to the Organised Crime Investigation Division, OCID for alleged breaches of the Sex Offences Act and Consumer Protection Act.

The attorney who reportedly operates a Massage Parlour in Montego Bay, St James, has been charged with living off the earnings of prostitution and misleading and deceptive conduct. His arrest followed a raid on the massage parlour along Gloucester Avenue on Saturday, in which seven women were arrested for alleged prostitution.

Investigators reported that over the past two years, the well-known attorney has been employing women from different parishes to work as prostitutes under the guise of being a masseuse.

Head of OCID, Senior Superintendent Clifford Chambers said the arrest of Mr Gayle is part of a major crack down on human trafficking and prostitution by his unit.  The attorney was released on 400-thousand dollars station bail last night, to appear in court on May 5. However, SSP Chambers said he’s still under investigation by OCID.

The senior commander told RJR News that since February, a number of persons have been charged under “Operation Fix It” which has been targeting persons involved in human trafficking and prostitution. He said operations have been conducted in the Corporate Area and Montego Bay. SSP Chambers said other towns such as Ocho Rios, St Ann, will also be targeted.

Mr Gayle was Chairman of the panel which imposed bans on Jamaican athletes Asafa Powell and Sheron Simpson for drug violations.
