MIAMI – A Tampa man was behind bars in South Florida after Miami police said he was caught pimping a woman in an undercover prostitution stabbing on Tuesday.
Justin Ambrosio Everett, 34, faced three felonies including “force, coerce or coerce” the woman into prostitution. He is also facing criminal charges.
Miami Police Department officers and human trafficking investigators from the Miami-Dade Attorney’s Office carried out a prostitution stabbing at a hotel in the Flagami neighborhood, according to an arrest report.
Police wrote that they came into contact with the victim through an online prostitution notice and an undercover officer set up an appointment.
According to police, after the two met at the hotel and exchanged $300, police made an arrest and arrested the victim, who told officers “a man named Justin was waiting for them in the parking lot.”
Shortly thereafter, Everett knocked on the hotel room door and the police took him into custody.
According to the report, upon learning of his allegations, Everett told detectives, “I’m pimping her, but I’m not forcing her to have sex.”
Police said he admitted to setting up prostitution reports and making appointments for the victim.
The woman told police that she and Everett originally met by accident: after a car accident in Tampa.
According to the report, the victim told police that Everett would set up all of her appointments and communicate with potential clients, and she would then give him all the money. She told police that Everett would give her money if she needed it.
Police said they took Everett to jail and offered services to the woman.
Everett was held on an $18,000 bond.
