NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A pimp has been charged with Trafficking for a Commercial Sex Act and Promoting Prostitution by Metro police after a prostitute tells police she fears him.

An undercover officer went to a room at the Super 8 on Spence Lane yesterday in response to a ad in the erotic section. He met a woman and paid her $180 for sex acts before identifying himself, according to the affidavit.

The woman told police that she pays 28-year-old Derrick Stephenson $40 a day to stay in his room and half the money from every sex act deal. She says she is just one of his at least three of his girls.

The woman also told police that she feared Stephenson and could not leave. She recounted to police being present when he assaulted and threatened others.

Stephenson is booked into the Davidson County Jail on $30,000 bond.
