A family which made a fortune out of running eight brothels in Devon have been stripped of more than £100,000 of ill-gotten assets.
Former prostitute Edwina Christian-Stockwell rented out rooms to sex workers from Eastern Europe and Thailand by the night for £80 a time.
She recruited her 70-year-old husband Michael and 33-year-old son Richard to help collect rents and launder the profits.
Christian-Stockwell was jailed at Exeter Crown Court in March this year and now she and her family have been ordered to repay £108,911.13 under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
Their string of brothels was busted by police after neighbours in Exeter and Torquay complained about suspicious activity with a stream of men visiting the properties.
The family made £176,269.10 over two years and police found £3,588 cash hidden in the school bag of Christian-Stockwell’s 11-year-old daughter.
Messages on madam Christian-Stockwell ‘s phone showed she had also helped to organise a sex party for swingers in Exeter, calling her clients ‘kinky bastards’.
Christian-Stockwell, also known as Kalay, aged 59, of Vine Road, Torquay, admitted eight counts of managing a brothel and two of money laundering and was jailed for two years eight months in March.
