Social Worker Sells Prostitutes
December 27, 2014 permalink
Dale Richard Aymont was a senior consultant to Manitoba Child and Family Services, an agency that looks over our shoulders to determine whether we are good parents. He had a sideline: selling the services of prostitutes. One woman says Aymont kept her working by threatening her with violence and on one occasion physically assaulted her.
More human trafficking charges against former CFS worker
A 43-year-old man who worked for Child and Family Services and in human resources for a local media outlet is facing more human trafficking charges.
Winnipeg police said Dale Richard Aymont forced at least three women to work in the sex trade in Brandon from March to Oct. 14, 2014. The first charge of human trafficking came in November, the second in December.
The first known victim, a 25-year-old female, came to police and said she was forced by Aymont to work as an escort. Aymont allegedly advertised, for a fee, the sexual services of the woman. During that time, he also allegedly threatened the victim with violence and on one occasion physically assaulted her.
As the investigation continued, two additional adult female victims came forward to police.
Sources confirmed that Aymont was a human resource consultant with a Winnipeg media outlet for a short time before leaving the position.
Prior to that, his profile on LinkedIn shows he worked for Child and Family Services as a senior consultant from 2011-13.
Brandon police said they had no record of Aymont until this June, when they received several calls involving him regarding minor incidents. He was later charged with possession of crystal meth on July 6.
A 2013 blog post, purportedly written by Aymont, said modern Canadians find themselves in a "moral quagmire" when pondering the decriminalization of prostitution.
"Can the modern sex trade and modern morality co-exist?" he asked in the post.
Aymont is in custody and has been charged with human trafficking, two counts of assault, robbery, uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm, living on the avails of prostitution, materially benefiting from human trafficking and overcoming resistance by attempting to choke, suffocate or strangle another person for his further alleged involvement.
