Scott Allen Shadle, 34, allegedly threatened to divorce his wife if she stopped turning over money from their alleged prostitution business. She is accused of sexually servicing men for money — all from the confines of a Westmoreland County apartment, Tribe Live reports.
Police say Scott Shadle had posted online ads charging for sex with his wife, Rebecca Shadle, 38. The alleged sex-for-cash business took place at Eastmont Estates apartments in Greensburg, Pa.
According to TribLive.com, police have text messages detailing discussions between the pair over how much money to charge for sex and how much of the proceeds Rebecca Shadle would then turn over to her husband.
The texts also document a martial spat between the couple that grew out of the alleged home-operated prostitution business.
TribLive.com writes that when Rebecca Shadle threatened to cut off the money, her husband texted “that he would file divorce papers and call her caseworker,” court documents state.
Rebecca Shadle also is accused of charging her male customers extra to touch a 7-year-old-girl entrusted to her care. She faces charges of trafficking of a minor, aggravated indecent assault of a child, sexual exploitation of children, corruption of minors and endangering the welfare of children.
Police say she has acknowledged being a prostitute and letting two men inappropriately touch the girl.
Her husband, Scott Shadle, faces three counts related to promotion of prostitution.
And a pair of alleged customers — David Allan Smith, 47, of Greensburg, and Brian Keith Spillar, 49, of Ligonier — face sex charges in the case related to their alleged contact with the 7-year-old girl. (Pennlive)
