ROCHESTER, Minn. – A pimping charge has been dismissed against an Olmsted County man, but he’s still going to state prison.

42-year-old Desmond Lamont Reeder of Rochester was arrested on March 9 after a woman told the Rochester Street Crimes Unit that Reeder recruited her to work as a prostitute.  He was charged with receiving profits from the prostitution of an individual, illegally possessing an electronic incapacitation device and possession of a small amount of marijuana.

Reeder was then arrested on May 6 and charged with gross misdemeanor domestic assault, two counts of DWI, fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle and reckless driving.  Rochester police say Reeder assaulted a women and when officers tried to question him, Reeder took off in his truck and almost hit a police officer.

On Thursday, Reeder entered a guilty plea to domestic assault and all other charges in both cases were dismissed.  He also pleaded guilty to a charge of 2nd degree sale of drugs in a school, park or public housing zone for an arrest back in August, 2015.

Reeder has been sentenced to serve a total of 95 months behind bars.
