Former News Director NBC Producer Arrested for Running House of Prostitution

Police in Chandler, Arizona busted a guy that they said was running a prostitution house out of his home.

KPNX reports that according to court paperwork, Robert Richardson, a freelance Producer for NBC and former Tucson News Director hired a male masseur to give sensual massages so he could record them on hidden camera for his own gratification.

Police say Richardson "modified his bedroom into a massage studio where the erotic massages would take place."

Police claim Richardson's gig was to get male masseuses that he would hire to perform sex acts on male clients in exchange for money.

When the masseuses would meet with clients, police say Richardson would watch in another room via a hidden camera.

Richardson was booked on charges of keeping or residing in a house of prostitution, procuring or placing persons in a house of prostitution, receiving earnings of a prostitute, pandering and illegal control of an enterprise.

Along with his NBC freelance duties Richardson was also a News Director at KVOA in Tucson.

The male masseur was also arrested.
