James Parham, 75, Accused Of Running Prostitution Ring In Senior Housing Complex

This housing complex gives new meaning to the term "senior benefits."

James Parham, 75, was arrested for allegedly running a prostitution den out of apartments in an Englewood, N.J. public senior housing complex, according to NBC New York.

Parham employed a "mix of young women and older residents" cops told the station on Tuesday.

Englewood Patch reports that Parham allegedly told cops the prostitutes were mostly "crack-addicted women." None of the alleged prostitutes were charged in the bust, which also netted fellow housing complex resident Cheryl Chaney, 66, who was accused of possessing drug paraphernalia and maintaining a nuisance for allegedly allowing drug use in her apartment.

PIX 11 reports that eviction proceedings have been launched against Parham and Chaney.

Police said they learned of the criminal activity from residents at a senior safety seminar in March. "Residents of the facility reported seeing drunks, vagrants and drug addicts regularly wandering in and out," PIX 11 reports.
