Lottery-Winning Officer's Wife Charged With Prostitution

NBC10.com

A western Pennsylvania police officer who made headlines when he won a $1 million Powerball drawing last month has been removed from the schedule because he's named in a criminal complaint charging his wife with working as a scheduler for a prostitution business.

Defense attorney David Shrager says Rankin Officer Matthew Brown and his wife, Jennifer, have done nothing wrong. Shrager says the business in question provides bachelor party services, not prostitution. The officer, who is not charged, is nonetheless named as being a driver and working security for the business. Jennifer Brown is charged with conspiracy to promote prostitution -- a felony -- and other counts.

Police Chief Ryan Wooten says he's taken Brown off the schedule until he and borough council decide what to do with the officer.
