Report: Former MDOC investigator ran prostitution ring

Details have emerged regarding a former internal affairs investigator with the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC) who was operating a prostitution operation when he was arrested earlier this year in Hartland Township.

44-year-old Scott Matthew Fink of Milford, who pleaded guilty to charges connected to a May 19th raid by the Michigan State Police Special Investigation Section at the Best Western in Hartland Township, is awaiting sentencing September 21st in front of Livingston County Circuit Court Judge Michael Hatty.

According to a story in Wednesday’s Detroit Free Press, police “seized confidential state files, found in a motel room mixed with a menu listing prices for various sex acts,” when they raided a pair of rooms at the hotel.

Fink and a 35-year-old East Lansing woman were arrested after she offered an undercover police officer a “naked massage and oral sex in return for $800 in cash.” The Free Press says Fink and the woman had advertised online dates with her in the days preceding the arrests. The woman does not appear to have been charged.

Fink was employed at the time as a special investigator with the MDOC’s Internal Affairs Division, but resigned following his arrest.

He had originally been charged with transporting a person for prostitution, accepting earnings from prostitution, and aiding and abetting. On August 11th, 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. Fink then pleaded guilty to all five counts.

The Free Press says a video baby monitor and cameras were among the items discovered in the raid and that Fink told investigators he and the woman have an open relationship and he “likes being a voyeur in this situation.”

According to documents obtained by the Free Press, also seized were confidential state files including “administrative manifest(s), note pads with handwritten notes,” as well as “individual case files for internal affairs investigations.”

The investigation into Fink appears to have begun when his estranged wife went to Milford police on Feb. 27 after finding in “a list of hotels, women’s names, client names, and a menu for sex acts,” in Fink’s backpack. Milford Police then turned the investigation over to the MSP.
