Brisbane man fined over prostitute motel

A District Court judge has fined a 55-year-old Brisbane businessman for allowing prostitutes to work out of his Kangaroo Point motel.

Timothy Brendon Parker pleaded guilty on Monday to one count of having an interest in a premises used for prostitution.

The court heard police from the Prostitution Enforcement Taskforce targeted the Queensland Motel in 2006 after they became aware prostitutes were working there.
