California man gets prison time in prostitution case

August 21, 2013 

— Antonio Marreal Jones, 32, was sentenced to 10 years in prison earlier this month for bringing a woman to Boise for prostitution. He will be eligible for parole after two and a half years.

Two other charges, accepting the earnings of a prostitute and providing false information to a police officer, were dismissed by the prosecutor.

Jones, of Oakland, Calif., was arrested April 2 after police received a report of suspicious activity in the parking lot of a West Fairview hotel.

Police said Jones drove at least one woman to Boise from California, then set her up in local hotels as a prostitute. Three other people were cited on misdemeanor prostitution charges.
