Man pleads guilty to running Amarillo Prostitution Ring

An Oklahoma man is facing five years in prison after he pleads guilty to running a prostitution ring out of Amarillo.

John Allen Johnson, Jr., along with his co-defendant Mark Alan Johnson of Amarillo, were charged with running the prostitution ring from March 2000 to January 2007.

The charges included using the interstate to transport people, both adults and minors, for the purpose of engaging in prostitution.

The so-called escorts were dispatched from two separate locations in Amarillo.

Johnson, Jr. will be sentenced in March.
