Landlord In UK Jailed For ‘Sex For Rent’ Offences

Published

on

A landlord who forced a homeless woman to sleep with him in exchange for a room is the first person to be jailed in England and Wales for’sex for rent’ offenses.

In 2018, Christopher Cox, 53, sought out vulnerable young women to live with him at his home in Cranleigh, Surrey.

He allegedly instructed women to wear bikinis around the house, participate in BDSM, and sleep in his bed in exchange for house rent.

His went to a rent agency website online and posted an advertisement aimed at ‘a girl in need,’ asking ‘if you are a young girl 16-plus who is stuck at home and wants to get away, or perhaps you are homeless seeking a safe route out, I have a room available in my home for a young girl.’

In the advertisement, he stated that in exchange for a place to stay, they would be expected to ‘cook, clean, do laundry, and possibly more.’

On Tuesday, May 10, Guildford Crown Court heard that one of his victims was a homeless woman who was ‘unwell, desperate, suicidal, needed hip replacement surgery, and was in pain.’

According to the prosecutor, Cox described his behavior as his “dirty secret” in a message to his friends.

Cops became aware of his actions in August 2018 after two female undercover reporters from ITV’s The Kyle Files responded to online ads for ‘a girl in need.’

Even after being confronted by TV cameras, he continued to send out his advertisements.

Cox allegedly told friends at the time, ‘I got myself into a bit of hot water due to my sex-for-rent tenants.’

Surrey Police searched his phone and discovered evidence of a homeless woman agreeing to a deal out of ‘desperation.’

Defending attorney Rupert Hallowes stated that his client, who was previously convicted of sexually abusing a young boy in the 1980s, believed his actions were ‘only illegal if he wanted sex three times a week.’

Cox’s actions, according to Judge Robert Fraser, were a “cynical attempt to take advantage of people” by “very deliberately targeting homeless women who were vulnerable.”

The crime has now become “colloquially known as sex-for-rent,” according to the judge, and “this is the first such prosecution that has been brought.”

‘It is remarkable and speaks to your determination to continue that you posted additional advertisements,’ the judge told Cox.

‘Perhaps it reflects the strength of your sexual intention.’

Cox received a one-year prison sentence after admitting to inciting and controlling prostitution.

However, it is the last photo that has gotten everyone talking and has prompted dozens of buyers to place bids. Instead of sharing another zoomed-in shot of the kitchen essential, the seller inadvertently posted a nude photo of herself that was clearly not intended for the advertisement.

She was seen standing in front of her bedroom mirror wearing nothing but skimpy black pants. Unsurprisingly, the ad quickly became popular on Twitter.
