Greeley mom pleads guilty in prostitution case | News
GREELEY, Colo. — A 25-year-old Greeley woman who, along with her mother, was arrested for prostitution pleaded guilty on Wednesday.
Amanda Becker pleaded guilty to one count of keeping a place of prostitution and one count of child abuse.
A tip to the Greeley Police prompted an investigation on April 22. Greeley Police say investigators found the women were advertising their services on backpage.com, so an undercover agent arranged an “appointment.”
“The investigator arrived and saw (Becker’s) child in the living room of the apartment as the investigator was escorted to the bedroom,” said Greeley Police Sgt. Susan West. “Additional officers and investigators entered the home at this time and arrested a 43-year-old female and a 25-year-old female, the mother and grandmother of the child in the apartment.”
The child is two-years-old.
Sherry Whiteacre, the two-year-old’s grandmother, faces Prostitution and Child Abuse charges later this month.
