A West Side man is charged with beating and forcing a Cincinnati woman to work as a prostitute at a Streeterville hotel last weekend. Madison Reed, 32, was on parole after serving half of a 3-year sentence for promoting prostitution when he was arrested last Sunday afternoon.
Police were called to a hotel in the 900 block of North Dewitt around 1:30 p.m. last Sunday after the 18-year-old victim reported that she had been beaten in a hotel room that she shared with Reed, according to court records.
Police said the woman told them that Reed brought her to the hotel against her will, struck her in the head with his body and fists, and forced her to engage in sex acts with strangers. Reed coerced the woman to engage in prostitution by threatening and physically assaulting her, prosecutors said.
Reed is charged with involuntary servitude – physical restraint; trafficking for labor-recruits; and repeated promotion of prostitution.
Judge Sophia Atcherson ordered him held without bail and the Illinois Department of Corrections this week revoked his parole. Reed has been returned to the Stateville Correctional Center, according to state records.
In January 2016, Reed was convicted of promoting prostitution for arranging sex acts with a woman in the Loop. He was sentenced to three years plus one year of supervised release by Judge Thomas Byrne.
