(AP) – A Little Rock man who prosecutors say ran a brothel
out of his home has been sentenced to nearly two years in prison for lying to
the Social Security Administration about his ability to work.
Online court documents show 61-year-old Gary Lemond Shorter was sentenced
Thursday to 21 months in prison. Shorter pleaded guilty in April to making a
false statement to the Social Security Administration in exchange for a second,
identical count being dismissed.
Prosecutors say Shorter had received Social Security disability benefits since
2011 after making false statements that he was unable to work when he was
operating a strip club and a brothel out of his Little Rock home that was known
as “the Cat House.”
