Cranleigh hitting the headlines again…?
‘Sex-for-Rent’ Case: Cranleigh Man in Court
A Cranleigh man accused of offering accommodation in what is believed to be the first sex-for-rent allegation in England and Wales has appeared in Staines magistrates’ court.
Christopher Cox, 52, who was born and brought up in the village is said to have posted adverts on a classified website offering young homeless women a place to stay with him in his house.
He is accused of asking the women to send him pictures of them in bikinis and providing sex in exchange for a free room between May and November 2018.
Mr Cox did not indicate a plea to inciting prostitution for gain and pleaded not guilty to controlling prostitution for gain.
