There is more trouble in Baltimore’s law enforcement community. Already reeling from last month’s major corruption scandal that involved some of the city’s corrections officers, Baltimore is erasing yet another black eye as one of its police officers was charged with pimping his wife, who was busted by undercover officers in a prostitution sting.
A 31-year-old Baltimore Police officer was charged Friday with pimping out his wife after officers from a human trafficking task force found him outside a hotel room where the woman had agreed to have sex for cash with an undercover officer.
The child recovery task force was working a proactive investigation into human trafficking when they came across a “young-looking female” advertised as an escort on a website, police said. Officers arranged to meet the female at a hotel near BWI airport, court records show.
Inside the hotel room, a woman identified by police as Marissa Braun-Manneh told an undercover officer that she would have sex for $100, and she was placed under arrest, charging documents show.
She said that her husband, Lamin Manneh, was waiting outside in a car, and that she gives him her money and he drives her from “date-to-date,” according to court records. She also said that he posts the online ads using his credit card. Police said Manneh acknowledged his role in an interview with detectives, records show.
