CLEVELAND (AP) — A grand jury in Cleveland has indicted a man on charges of running a brothel out of his suburban office building.

The Cuyahoga County grand jury charged 71-year-old James Walsh of Willoughby Hills with six counts of promoting prostitution and nine counts of money laundering.

Prosecutor Timothy McGinty says Walsh had a staff of prostitutes offering nude massages and sex acts at the Bedford office building that he owns.

Police cracked the case when a prostitute apparently suffered an overdose.

Walsh was booked into the county jail Wednesday night to await a court hearing.

No attorney was listed for him in court records. There was no immediate response to a request for comment left Thursday at the phone listed on a company Website.
