A Highlands Ranch mother arrested for prostitution allegedly fondled an undercover officer in an upstairs bedroom of her residence while her two youngest children were in the room next door, authorities say. The woman, Sheri Sims, 39, was arrested Thursday for investigation of prostitution and child abuse.
While the undercover officer was with Sims, her two youngest children, ages 13 and 16, were in next room, said investigators in court papers filed in Douglas County. Her third child, 19, was downstairs, said authorities. The documents claim that Sims made “contact that went beyond (an) appropriate massage.”
After the Highlands Ranch mother disrobed and began touching the genitals of the naked undercover detective, he gave fellow officers an arrest signal, according to the documents. The investigation was conducted by the Douglas County Sheriff Department’s Special Investigations Unit, Pattern Crimes Unit and patrol division.
