    Alleged Jailhouse Pimp in Fairfax Co.

    Police are looking into the possibility an inmate in Fairfax County has been running a prostitution ring while behind bars. (Published Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013)

    An inmate at the Fairfax jail may have been orchestrating a prostitution ring out of his jail cell, documents obtained by News4 allege.

    Lenny Paul Haskins, 32, was arrested last year for failure to appear for a felony offense, failure to appear for a misdemeanor offense and possession of marijuana. 

    Court documents allege Haskins made phone calls from jail to two prostitutes regarding ads online. The prostitutes worked out of a Rockville Best Western hotel and money earned through the prostitution activities was directed to Haskins' commissary account at the jail, according to documents.

    Haskins has a criminal history dating back to 2003, and includes robbery, prostitution, narcotics and weapons charges.
