Judge Orders Truck Stop to Combat Prostitution (Apr 08, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma County District Court judge has ordered the owners of a local truck stop to take greater measures to combat prostitution on its premises.

Judge Bryan Dixon ruled Thursday that owners of Five Star Truck Stop, located in far northeast Oklahoma City, must increase signage, enhance fencing to the property, improve lighting and video monitoring capabilities and hire security guards.

The lawsuit was brought by the city of Oklahoma City on behalf of the local police department.

Oklahoma City Police Spokesman Sgt. Gary Knight said the lawsuit was filed after company owners repeatedly refused to stop prostitution.

Maulik Sharma of Five Star Truck Stop said the company has already hired security guards, added cameras and now notifies police when prostitutes arrive on the property.
