A Syracuse pimp has gotten off with a slap on the wrist after he was caught running a prostitution ring at the State Fair. 40 year old Jason Pride has had sex trafficking charges against him dismissed, which could have sent him to prison for 25 years. Instead he pleaded guilty today promoting prostitution which will get him simple probation..
Prosecutors says they had a tough time proving their case against Pride because two hookers he controlled are so addicted to drugs , they couldn't be trusted to testify against thier pimp. Last summer at the fair, cops set up a surveillance location too catch folks from out of town and others who might be looking for a good time with a hooker during the fair's 12 day run.
