PHOENIX (AP) - A Maricopa County juvenile detention officer accused of maintaining a house of prostitution in Chandler has pleaded not guilty in the case.
County prosecutors say 30-year-old Adam Munoz entered his plea Monday. His next court date is on Feb. 5.
Chandler police arrested Munoz on Dec. 4 following an undercover investigation that started in September when detectives got a tip about an illegal massage business.
Police documents say undercover officers discovered patrons would enter Munoz's apartment and exchange money for a massage and sexual favors from women. Munoz allegedly would then receive $50.
Chandler police say Munoz also was accused of illegal control of an enterprise.
They say Munoz was working as a Maricopa County juvenile detention officer at the time of his arrest. His current job status is unclear.
