Istanbul man faces jail for arranging prostitute for 14-year-old son
ISTANBULA Turkish man faces 12 years in jail after ordering a prostitute for his 14-year-old son in Istanbul.
The man, identified only by the initials N.K., is charged with “sexual abuse of child” and “allocating a location for prostitution,” after it was revealed by police that five years ago he arranged for a prostitute to have sexual intercourse with his son, who was 14 years old at the time and therefore underage.
The businessman N.K. called his friend, identified only as F.Y., to find a woman to have sexual intercourse with his son in exchange for money.
F.Y., who was previously prosecuted for involvement in illegal prostitution, allegedly contacted the prostitute, identified as 25-year-old B.O., and on Dec. 9, 2011, B.O. and B.K. had sexual intercourse at N.K.’s house in Istanbul’s Kandilli neighborhood.
N.K.’s telephones were being wiretapped by police as part of a separate investigation at the time, which is how they found out about the arrangement.
The Anadolu Public Prosecutor’s Office started an investigation and B.O.’s testimony was taken, during which she said she had sexual intercourse with the 14-year-old boy in exchange for money. As part of the probe, forensics officials reported that the 14-year-old’s mental health was not affected by the incident.
The prosecutor has demanded that B.O. be sentenced up to eight years in prison on charges of “abuse of children,” while he has also demanded that the father and F.Y., who helped the father find the woman, be sentenced to up to 12 years in jail.
