A woman who ran a brothel in Bradley Stoke has been ordered to repay £1,115 and given a one year community order.
An investigation was launched earlier this year after police received reports of men calling at an address in Boursland Close and that young women were also seen there.
Enquiries suggested the address was being used as a brothel.
Police were given a search warrant and subsequently, 46-year-old Jana Chmelickova was charged with keeping a brothel.
During the warrant £1,115 cash was found at the premises.
Jana Chmelickova appeared at Bristol Crown Court today and was given a one-year community order and subject to a curfew for three months.
The court heard that Chmelickova's benefit from crime was £1,115 and the cash was confiscated under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
We are committed to seizing any assets that criminals have gained as a result of crime. It is not acceptable that criminals benefit from illegal activities and we will relentlessly pursue them through the courts to ensure their money is taken. By doing this we show criminals that they will not benefit from crime and hopefully deter others from entering a life of crime.
