May 12, 2014


St. Louis, MO – CARMEN A. FLUKER, a/k/a Carmen Simmons a/k/a Carmen Lacy a/k/a “Lucious,” was indicted for her alleged promotion of prostitution between May 2011 and April 2014. 

Fluker, Bel-Ridge, Missouri, will appear in federal court today for her initial appearance.

If convicted, this charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and/or fines up to $250,000.  In determining the actual sentences, a Judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the St. Louis County Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit. 

As is always the case, charges set forth in an indictment are merely accusations and do not constitute proof of guilt.  Every defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty.
