GREAT FALLS — Corey James Cannon has been charged in Great Falls with aggravated promotion of prostitution.
On August 25th, the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) consulted with Great Falls police officers about an ongoing investigation regarding Cannon, who is an active-duty airman assigned to Malmstrom Air Force Base.
Court documents state that Cannon attempted to have sexual contact with a youth in Great Falls and was arrested on or about August 6th. OSI took jurisdiction of that investigation and seized Cannon’s phone.
Scot Donald Petrie, 62, of Billings, MT, operated two massage parlors where workers lived and provided both legal massage work and illegal sex services, prosecutors said.
The four males were alleged “johns” while the woman allegedly was selling sex,. The county is committed to proactively investigating and holding those accountable that buy, sell or trade human beings for sex slavery, said Sheriff Jesse Slaughter.
Statistics show 80 percent of human trafficking victims come into contact with the health care system. And St. Peter’s Health hosted a training session Tuesday to help medical providers spot them.
