Jeff Prostitution Ring Case UPDATE

Today,  Ivan Deleon and Jeanna Kaufman appeared in Judge Dan Moore’s Circuit Courtroom in Jeffersonville with their lawyers, Bart Batteau and Eric Weitzel for a hearing on their motions to dismiss certain of the charges against the couple relating to promoting prostitution.  Detective Bobby McGee testified for the Clark County Prosecutor’s office represented by Linda Lamping, DPA.

McGee testified that he had confidential informants who went to the 1501 Club and pay for such things as ‘four hand shower massages’.  The money was paid to the the club and then ‘tips’ were paid to the girls for ‘services’ above and beyond the hygenic application of soap and water.   It was contended that defendant’s Deleon and Kaufman ‘knew all about it’ because, after all, “they got the money” (for the service) and there were sex acts going on ‘all over the place’. Wooo!

The defense’s strategy emerged that the subtext of the motions was that if the State won’t produce the names of the ‘johns’  then these defendants can’t ‘investigate’ enough to learn if  sex acts ACTUALLY occurred.  The State says they got enough with just the confidential informants and the subsequent “undercover cops” from the ISP.  (That must have been an awesome assignment…but how do you explain that shizz to your wife? “Honey, It’s been a tough day…I been down there in Jeffersonville having undercover sex with these hot Jeffersonville prostitutes…”Ruckel, Marisa wb.jpg )

More to the point, the defense want to know when, where, why and WHO had sex acts…so they can try and show their “ALIBI” .  (  Ivan, “I didn’t know that state cop was having sex with Mitzi!!! I was at Sizzler that day!”).

One thing must be said,  when you take a look at old Ivan and his wife they don’t live up to your idea of pimps and madams. Ivan’s got a big old kinda fat bald head. He looks more like a wrassler than a pimp.Ivan Deleon His wife got her hair all squirreled up in a ‘puffed out’ hair do like you might see on ‘the View” and she has these little kinda beady eyes.   I guess it takes all kinds.

    I can’t prove my husband was a client but my heart and gut tell me so. I will pay someone, anyone to confirm his name. If I don’t have enough in cash I would also be willing to trade items of value or information. I will give the area code and first three numbers of his cell and you can tell me his first name and the last four numbers of his cell. I have been in hell for the past three years and I need closure. My marriage is in the final stages of divorce. Every day brings more pain and I hardly recognize my reality. The hardest part is accepting the damage my state of mind has caused my kids. My inability to properly cope is affecting them. I have neglected to understand. I have been caught in my own pain. I will be a better mom. I am human and I know I will still fall down in my depression at times. That is why closure is very important to me. Something in me has died or at the very least is so occupied with making sense of my failed marriage that I am no longer whole. He denies an affair and says he is leaving because he can’t make me happy. I was not unhappy until the signs of cheating appeared. I confronted him with my suspicions, he had an answer for everything. He accused me of being crazy and purposely sabotaging our marriage. He moved out and only came back when I promised I would drop it. I stopped accusing him so he would come back home to the our family. I had no proof, I told myself that I must have been wrong, crazy or both. He swore on our children. He can back home. One year later he filed for divorce. All of our savings our gone, Hundreds of thousands. He handeled the finances and says we spent it on bills and our lifestyle and since I didnt handle the money I am out of touch and don’t understand. Did he spend it on prostitutes, is some one who is in the know blackmailing him, or both? My attorney says its simple math, numbers dont lie and his math is not adding up. This is good as far as what will be coming back to me financially, but I would trade it all for the truth. I was secure in our marriage, never jealous or paranoid. Please I need to know, it is eating me alive. I am clinically depressed. I see a counselor and have been put on antidepressants. My health is failing due to the stress. I need to know so I can move forward. I can deal with the truth but I cant deal with not knowing for the rest of my ilfe. Is this is real or am I crazy? I want to right my wrongs if they exist. Have I ruined my family, scared my children, drove their father and my husband away for no reason other than insanity. Please if there is someone out there who can help me. If there is one person reading this who knows what this feels like, how crazy it can make you. Please, I know you are out there and can help me. I will answer any questions you have. I only ask that my response be private

      I have been in your shoes, different details but same emotional rollercoaster. I can tell you from both a professional as well as a personal experience that your gut never lies. I wored with crooks, cons, liars and cheaters for over 10 years and if I learned only one thing, it would be to ALWAYS trust your instincts, you may not have verbal closure, you may never see the truth with your eyes, but every cell in your body is picking up on something you don’t realize and it’s trying to tell you, listen to your gut, your inner or higher self or whatever you like to call it because it is trying to tell you things your brains has not yet picked up on. I know you probably don’t want to believe that your marriage was a sham, no one ever does, but it happens so often that we get caught up with someone who doesn’t deserve your emotional investment. I am so sorry for your pain and confusion, but I promise once you are able to accept what is and give up the notion of closure in the way you THINK you need it and be grateful for the closure your own instincts have given you, life will begin again and you will come out of this a stronger, smarter and stable woman. Reclaim the power you are willingly giving that man to hurt you. He can only hurt you when you allow him to hurt you. You are no longer a victim, you are a woman that has been blessed with the opportunity to become BETTER from your situation. Living well IS irrefutably the BEST revenge. Take care and know that you are worth so much more than you have received thus far, but greater things are on the horizon waiting for the day you are able to accept them.

    Gawnews is glad you are seing a counselor. However, it seems like even if you found out your answers, it would not ease your pain. take care of yourself and children. Heed your counselor and do not blame yourself if your husband was unfaithful. That decision was his if he did it.

    Thank for the kind words. On a side note, your blog is interesting to say the very least. At one point I realized my mouth was hanging open and thats not a cliche.

    I worked there for a while. There might have been a few who did. But not every girl there did anything sexual with clients. Just fully clothed massages. Alot where lonley older gentleman who wanted to enjoy a nice conversation with a pretty lady. I made great money. Way more than i could anywhere else. Job allowed me to get back on my feet. Get my own apartment and a car. For once i wasn’t struggling and could not worry about whose couch id sleep on that night. I know people dont approve of it but this job isnt what people make it out to be.
