be newsA 75-year-old resident of a New Jersey senior citizen housing complex is suspected of running a prostitution ring that employed some elderly residents as sex workers, NBC 4 New York reports.

James Parham, 75, was also accused of allowing residents and visitors to use crack in his apartments.

Englewood Police Chief Arthur O’Keefe told NBC 4 New York that Parham ran the prostitution ring in various apartments, and employed young women as well as senior citizen residents.

Reportedly, there was also sex and drug use going on in common areas of the complex, and some seniors were “afraid to venture into certain areas because they were afraid for their lives.”
