Madison man faces charges alleging he prostituted 3 women

MADISON, Wis. — A Madison man faces charges for allegedly prostituting three women and taking their profits, according to a release.
Lindy Gill, 39, was charged Monday with human trafficking, attempted human trafficking, second-degree sexual assault and receiving compensation from earnings of a commercial sex act, officials said. He also faces the charges as a criminal repeater.
According to a criminal complaint, Gill prostituted three women, including the mother of his child, took their profits and used some of the money to buy drugs and hotel rooms for himself and the women.
Gill threatened one of the women by saying he would contact Human Services about her child if she didn’t work for him, according to the criminal complaint. He also provided and withheld heroin from the three women in an attempt to control their working for him.
Gill attempted to prostitute a fourth woman in June 2014 and sexually assaulted her, according to the complaint.
He will make an initial court appearance Tuesday.
