SEX FIEND’S £130-AN-HOUR HOOKER EMPIRE IN CITY CENTRE APARTMENT
GUILTY: Crintula ( and Alexandru
( A CONVICTED rapist set up a prostitution racket in his home after getting married – and invited call girl pals to join it.
Alexandru and Crintula Kis set up the £130-an-hour “escort service” within days of tying the knot.
The husband and wife team shared their home in Hulme, Manchester, with two prostitutes who flew in from Italy.
Mr Kis has previous convictions for rape and sexual assault in his native Romania.
The couple kitted out the property with sex toys and advertised their services online, setting up appointments by text.
Up to 15 customers a day responded to the adverts, with one of the women earning £3,000 in just two weeks, Manchester Crown Court heard.
The lucrative operation was only discovered by the police after one woman fell out with the couple.
The 26-year-old hooker ran into the street, flagged down a passing patrol car and told officers the address she worked from, prompting a raid on the flat.
When officers searched the property they found the married couple at home with one of the sex workers, aged 22.
PCs, mobile phones, and lingerie were found at the flat by police.
Alexandru Kis, 34, and Crintula Kis, 21, admitted inciting prostitution.
Defending, Barry Grennan, said of Mr Kis’s role in the ring: “This was not controlling – these were friends who had known one another who were assisting one another in the same business.
“One of the
texts recovered indicates quite clearly that somebody was quite pleased to be earning £3,000 in two weeks. They were earning money, they were all friends together.
“The defendant married his wife in August, they rented accommodation, they were to share that accommodation.
“He had a car which he would use to ferry his wife and friends about and they would pay him for that, there’s no doubt he would have gained from his wife’s earnings.
“His wife knew one of the women in Italy and Germany before she met the defendant. He wasn’t the controller in the sense they were working a team – the text messages disclose that cooperation between them.
“They encouraged their friends to come over because they were friends – not because they wanted control over them.”
Judge Martin Rudland jailed Mr Kis for 12 months and gave Mrs Kis an eight-month sentence, suspended for two years with supervision and a programme requirement.
Mr Kis has already served the equivalent of a year on remand.
Sentencing the pair, the judge told them: “You involved yourselves in the unlawful exploitation of women who offered their sexual services to others, the proceeds of which led to you gaining financially.
“That is illegal in this country.”
