Tax accountant jailed for running brothels

A tax accountant from Stetford has been jailed for running brothels in Liverpool and Manchester, .

Forty one-year-old Rishi Gosain pleaded guilty pleading guilty to charges of controlling prostitution for gain and voyeurism at LIverpool Crown Court on Thursday and was sentenced to two-and-a-half years’ imprisonment.

Two charges against him of controlling a child prostitute were ordered to lie on file.

According to the prosecution case, Gosain managed around 40 to 50 prostitutes and the voyeurism charges arose from his habit of filming the women while performing sexual acts during "interviews" with him.

Gosain admitted sleeping with “five or 10” of the women and filming their activities without their consent on his laptop. He was jailed for four months on 10 voyeurism charges, to be served concurrently.

Gosain is said to have made £90,000 from pimping out the women, some of whom were as young as 16. He ran the operation in addition to his day job as an accountant, the Liverpool Echo reported.
