After being indicted on felony prostitution charges following a sting operation conducted by members of the Columbia Police Department’s Narcotics Unit, Barry Manthe jumps bond and takes off. But the infamous flesh-peddler doesn’t stay gone, according to some, using his law enforcement connections and client list full of people in high places to secure a safe return.
Police Protected Pimp utilizes interviews, police reports and other evidence to explore the relationship between the Columbia Missouri Police Department and Barry Manthe, a longtime sex trafficker who was granted virtual immunity in exchange for acting as a police informant.
