Warrant issued for southwest ND prostitution suspect

DICKINSON, N.D. - A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Wisconsin woman charged with promoting prostitution in southwest North Dakota.

Alexus Kawana Scott of Milwaukee did not appear at her pretrial hearing June 10, prompting Southwest District Judge William Herauf to authorize a bench warrant. Scott’s trial, which had been set for Wednesday, was canceled.

Scott and Christmas Davis of Oshkosh, Wis., were arrested by Belfield police on Jan. 27. Police found evidence of solicitation of prostitution during a traffic stop.

Davis entered a not guilty plea in February.

If convicted of promoting prostitution, Scott could be sentenced to up to 30 days in prison.
