STAR PRAIRIE, WI (WCMH) — A western Wisconsin woman faces prostitution and child endangerment charges after she allegedly performed sexual services from inside a chicken coop.
Authorities in Polk County say they were conducting a prostitution investigation regarding a Back Page advertisement. After exchanging messages with the person who posted the ad, authorities were directed to an address in rural Star Prairie, KARE-TV reports.
On May 12, officers conducted a search warrant and arrested Sarah Bradehoft, 27.
According to the criminal complaint, investigators say Bradehoft admitted to exchanging sex for money. She claimed she needed the money to return to Florida, where she had been living up until late March.
Bradehoft reportedly performed sexual acts on five clients inside the chicken coop on the property.
Bradehoft is the mother of six children. Four of those kids were inside the home at the time of the raid.
Child Protection Services took all of the kids into protective custody after her 2-year-old child tested positive for drugs including methamphetamine and cocaine.
