The suspect charged in a suspected prostitution operation in Hartland Township has entered a plea.
44-year-old Scott Matthew Fink of Milford, who was an investigator with the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC), pleaded guilty Friday to charges connected to a May 19th raid by the Michigan State Police Special Investigation Section at the Best Western in Hartland Township.
Fink was employed at the time as a special investigator with the MDOC’s Internal Affairs Division, but resigned following his arrest. Also arrested was a 35-year-old East Lansing woman, who was released pending further investigation.
Fink had originally been charged with transporting a person for prostitution, accepting earnings from prostitution, and aiding and abetting. On Friday, however, the Detroit Free Press reports that two additional charges were added; surveilling an unclothed person, a two-year felony; and using a computer to commit a crime, a four-year felony. He then pleaded guilty to all five counts.
A September 21st sentencing is set in front of Livingston County Circuit Court Judge Michael Hatty.
