Bartlett Man Indicted for Alleged Prostitution Business
(Bartlett) – Rodney Huffman’s home is on Linda Joyce Drive, which is a quiet street in Bartlett.
It’s the same place where the FBI believes he was running a prostitution business called AIM Entertainment.
According to the Commercial Appeal the indictments say he provided sexual partners for customers through advertisements posted the website Backpage.com, a well-known website for escort services.
The indictments say he sent girls to hotels in Memphis, Tunica, and Nashville.
They charged the customers, and he took a percentage.
The indictment say he also required all the girls who worked for him to have sex with him first.
We tried to talk to Huffman about the charges, but he wasn’t home.
Several of his neighbors, including a police officer, were home and not that surprised to hear about the charges.
“There were rumors around the neighborhood that he was busted for porn. Then there were rumors that that was the whore house,” Bartlett mom Karen Cmar said. “We told our kids don’t go near there stay away.”
Neighbors say about 15 FBI vehicles swarmed Huffman’s home Monday afternoon. They say agents confiscated several items from the home including computers.
“It’s kind of scary especially having four kids, daughters,” Michaell Summers said.
Summers was relieved to see Huffman cuffed especially since she says he once approached her teen girls.
“He came down here one time and asked my girls to clean his house. I was like uh I don’t think so,” she said.
Summers says she remembers police searching the home once before and hopes that these charges stick.
Huffman now faces up to 30 years behind bars.
