Deborah has been working undercover for 10 years with the Cincinnati Police Department, busting dope dealers, gang members, prostitutes, and pimps. She sometimes nabs 50 johns a night, and never wears provocative apparel to conduct these operations. “My clothes would then have been submitted as evidence, and the issue of entrapment would have been raised.”
One of her career highs was the bringing down of the Alpha Club, a brothel that had operated undisturbed in Cincinnati for 25 years. The case was successfully prosecuted in March 2004, and a framed check for $346,104, the amount Deborah secured for her department in the asset forfeiture, was hung in police headquarters.
