Pimping charges dropped
Charges against a couple arrested in November for allegedly running a prostitution ring were dropped today in Albemarle General District Court.
Pablo Castro, 28, and Sandra Morales, 22, were each charged with one felony count for receiving money or other valuables for the purpose of unlawful sexual intercourse in their Abbington Crossing apartment.
According to a release at the time of the arrest, an anonymous caller tipped off police. Gisela Martinez, 36, was charged with one count of prostitution, a misdemeanor, and allegedly told police she was brought to the apartment in the 700 block of Lords Court from Washington to service men.
