Tijuana Bordello Busted

Óscar Rubén Rodríguez Gómez

Tijuana newspapers reported this week that a former state policeman, Óscar Rubén Rodríguez Gómez, 54, was arrested on April 26 for running a casa de citas (“house of appointments”; i.e., a brothel) in a quiet residential district of Tijuana.

The brothel reputedly specialized in catering to men with a predilection for under-aged girls. Men reportedly responded to ads placed on Craigslist and in local publications.

The bordello was a house in the Cacho neighborhood. Appointments were allegedly set up by Rodríguez’s 31-year-old girlfriend, Patricia Peralta Montes de Oca (aka “La Candy”), who worked as a receptionist and secretary.

Investigators from the sex crimes and family violence division were alerted by an anonymous tipster of the presence of supposed minor females.

During the bust, police discovered four women of legal age who were reportedly posing as under-aged females. Five clients were caught in flagrante delicto. The ages of the women were not reported.

The ex-cop and his receptionist were charged with the crime of lenocinio, akin to “pimping and pandering.”

The 24-hour-a-day business reportedly had been operating for only a few weeks. The five clients were released after questioning, as were the “over-aged” females.

Ah, mi favorito predicamento; flagrante delicto.

But seriously, I don't get it--If prostitution is legal in Mexico, why would pimping and pandering be a crime? That's like saying, ice cream is legal but being an ice cream man is not.

Presumably because sex with underage girls is a crime.

Prostitution is not "legal" in Mexico, that's something widely misunderstood. In certain areas (or "a" certain area) of most large cities, it is tolerated and even regulated, but it isn't technically legal. It's a fascinating dynamic, but it mostly works here. They figure it's going to go on anyway, but legalizing it would create problems regulating it for reasons like the one's in this story. So, they deal with the problem in a very unique way.

Its only legal in certain sections of the city from my understanding.

May 4, 2012

My understanding is it is legal anywhere in Mexico. And those "underage" girls were not really underage. It could be prostitution is legal, but pimping (pandering) is not. In other words, direct sales only--no middle men. Who knew?

May 5, 2012

To be fair, who knows? I was only guessing, you are only guessing.

May 7, 2012

I'm not guessing, I have read the laws in the Codigo Penal and Codigo Civil of Baja California. Prostitution is not illegal as a whole but many aspects are. Underage or mentally unable are illegal, pimping and pandering is illegal, manifestation is illegal, brothels are illegal. Certain of the laws are overlooked within Zonas de Tolerencia like La Cohuila section of Zona Norte.

Can someone tell me exactly where the legal ones are so I know where NOT to go?
