A Cedar Hills man, originally facing prostitution charges, is in more hot water.
Jeffrey Jenks, and his wife Lorraine were arrested in December and accused of running a brothel out of their home.
According to American Fork Police the couple would advertise "Therapeutic Message" on social network sites on the Internet like Myspace and Facebook..
Police say Jenks acted as the business manager booking appointments, taking the money, and enforcing rules. Police say Lorraine performed the sex acts, all while her husband would sometimes watch, from another room, via a video camera.
Last month police say Jenks, while driving past another neighbor made an obscene hand gesture, and accused the neighbor of calling police, he allegedly told the neighbor, "The s*** was coming down the line," suggesting to the neighbor that Jenks would eventually retaliate. "During the initial investigation Mr. Jenks had expressed displeasure with his neighbors who he believed to be the cause of his problems, said Lt. Gregg Ludlow of the American Fork Police Department.
Just days after Jenks and his wife were arrested in December on prostitution charges, 2News interviewed a neighbor who told us she was always suspicious of what the Jenks were up to in their relatively busy home, "cars were there, coming and going between five and 6 a day, they would stay an hour a hour and a half," said the neighbor.
At the time the neighbor asked us to conceal her identity and voice out of fear, she said, that Jenks might retaliate.
We do not know if the woman we interviewed is the same person with whom Jenks had the confrontation that eventually lead to his most recent arrest.
Jenks was charged and arrested on January 28th with tampering and harassing a witness, a felony.
He is due back in court on those charges at the end of February.
