OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma County judge has ruled in favor of Oklahoma City in a lawsuit aimed at stopping rampant prostitution at the Five Star Truck Stop on N.E. 120th Street.

On October 26, 2010, the city filed a nuisance abatement lawsuit against Mian Rashid, the owner of Five Star Truck Stop. The lawsuit stated the truck stop was a public nuisance due to prostitutes who were often seen servicing truckers in the parking lot.

The city filed the lawsuit after issuing two notices to Rashid, advising him on how to rid his property of the so-called “lot lizards.” Despite the notices, the suit claimed Rashid made no attempt to stop prostitutes from plying their trade at the truck stop. Read rest of story at News9.com.

Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) is sending a packet of TAT materials to the owner of this truck stop to help them comply with the directives given by the judge and to identify any human trafficking going on as part of the prostitution taking place.
