Pair Ran Brothel Across Street From Police Station

Officers in Concord, Calif., didn't have to go far to bust a brothel.

The house of ill repute was across the street from the police station. Now, a married couple has pleaded guilty to running the house.

Debra Watts, 52, will serve one year of home detention for pimping and pandering. Her husband Ernest, 63, pleaded to a misdemeanor count of maintaining a house of prostitution.

Police said the hookers who operated out of the place charged $160 for a half hour and split the money with the couple.

Surveillance of the apartment revealed a Monday-through-Friday operation in which women would arrive by 10 a.m. and leave by 7 p.m. Men would enter and leave throughout the day, staying for about 30 minutes at a time, according to the affidavit.
