5-year sex worker ban for caravan ‘brothel’ owner
for some time.
A second person, Thumma Peacock, 58, of the same address, was not in court.
She is said to be in Thailand and was expected to return in the next few days.
The matter against her was adjourned for two weeks.
Making the order, District Judge Gwyn Jones said he was satisfied the information provided to the court made it necessary to protect persons at risk of being trafficked or exploited in the sex industry.
He said: “You were fully aware what the caravan was used for and you were associated with the second person.”
Gareth Preston, for North Wales Police, said officers attended the caravan and found two females, aged 49 and 50, from Thailand inside.
He said: “They both admitted being at the caravan for sex work and a search uncovered items used in prostitution. A quantity of cash was also found.”
One of the women told officers she paid Williams rent of £200 a week and had paid him £20 for a lift from a railway station.
Mr Preston said Peacock had been in a relationship with Williams and had previous convictions for relevant offences. He said in 2015 she had pleaded guilty to running a brothel in Bangor.
Eilian Williams, defending, said the application was agreed and his client had a ‘realistic view’ given the weight of the evidence.
He added Williams had been in a form of a relationship with Peacock.
“This has been to his detriment. For whatever reason he has not asked important questions of her,” the solicitor said.
Speaking after the hearing, Detective Sergeant Andrew Davies said: “We welcome the granting by the court of this STRO today. It is a first for North Wales Police, and underlines our commitment to making our force area the safest place to live in the United Kingdom.”
