TX Couple Charged with Prostitution, Pandering

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ A Wichita Falls couple is slapped with prostitution charges after being arrested in Lawton earlier this week.

To make matters worse, the couple brought the woman's one-year-old child along. According to an affidavit, an Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics agent conducting a sting noticed 22-year-old Taricka Bell's ad. She was advertising her services under the name "Sexychick22" and "Sunshine", offering her services to anyone "looking for fun".

The agent answered her ad and agreed to meet her in Lawton. The agent said he and Bell met that evening. He said once Bell agreed to exchange sex for 600 dollars, agents burst in and arrested her as she was undressing. They also found cocaine in her purse.

Agents arrested Bell's boyfriend, 31-year-old Ermond Gates, in the car. Her son was in the back seat, and agents found a loaded gun in the car. Gates claimed he had no idea what Bell was doing.

Bell faces up to ten years in prison on drug possession and prostitution charges, and Gates is looking at two years in prison for pandering charges.
