A man and woman have pleaded guilty to managing a brothel during an appearance at Luton Crown Court.
Sunil Mehta, 42, of Hemel Hempstead, and Graziela McNamee, 40, of Kings Langley, ran a brothel at a flat in Apsley, between June 1, 2016, and April 5, 2017.
Their arrests were the result of a proactive investigation by Hertfordshire Constabulary which culminated in a number of warrants in April 2017.
Mehta is further charged with two counts of fraud. He also pleaded guilty to these offences in court.
They relate to him using a fake persona under the name Steve Denton so that he could rent the flat from his own letting company. He also claimed back a single person occupancy allowance from Dacorum Borough Council.
They will both be sentenced at Luton Crown Court in June.
According to Companies House, a director called Sunil Mehta has directorships with a number of property companies in Hemel Hempstead.
