Hoosier Escort Service Website Still Up And Running

Last updated on Friday, April 6, 2007

(UNDATED) - The man charged with running a statewide prostitution ring, masked as an internet escort service, is now behind bars again.

Chad McClelland had his bail raised to a whopping $200-thousand dollars because prosecutors say he lied to them.

In an exclusive interview with WIBC, Jeff Wehmueller with the Hamilton County prosecutor's office says McClelland claimed he would shut down Hoosier hotties.com. But, not only is the website up and running, McClelland has put the "help wanted" sign out, putting ads in local newspapers, and even told prosecutors he was processing new employees.

McClelland was arrested just over a year ago in Cicero for running was police called a prostitution ring. The website offered escorts, including overnight rates.

McClelland will be back up in court in May, with a jury trial scheduled for mid June.
