Cop resigns after wife charged in running brothel
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) -- A Boca Raton police officer whose wife was charged with running a prostitution ring has resigned.
Police confirmed Thursday that Samuel McCoy resigned, but declined to give details.
The Palm Beach Post reports McCoy was investigated by internal affairs in the past for allegedly viewing pornography on his work computer and taking pictures of his genitalia. He was placed on administrative leave after his wife' arrest but has not been arrested in the case.
Thirty-five year-old Denise McCoy and Sara Marin were arrested in January for allegedly running a prostitution ring and sometimes engaging in the sexual acts. The women were charged with money laundering, conspiracy to commit money laundering and procuring prostitutes by living off their earnings.
A phone listing for the McCoys was not available.
