Eugene Edwin Sherbondy, who was recently charged with trafficking of persons and sexual abuse of children, faces an additional felony charge for aggravated promotion of prostitution.
Court documents state that a Great Falls police detective interviewed a woman who met Sherbondy when she was 17 and was involved in a sexual relationship with him from that point on over the next 20 years.
The woman reported that when she turned 21, Sherbondy encouraged her to have sex with others for money to benefit Sherbondy financially, according to court documents.
The woman said she acted as a prostitute on his behalf for the next 20 years.
Court documents state Sherbondy would receive money, food, housing, and drugs in return for the woman engaging in sexual services with other people.
The detective uncovered supporting evidence and spoke with people who confirm the woman’s report.
Prosectors have requested a $100,000 bond consecutive to the $250,000 bond set for his other charges.
