Florida Man's Son Tells Cops, "Those Are My Daddy's Hoes"
Last June, police got a call that a man had beat and choked a woman he allegedly forced into prostitution.
When cops caught up with the man -- 34-year-old Robert Burton -- they pulled him over.
He had three women and a little kid riding with him in the vehicle at the time. The boy, a 7-year-old, was apparently Burton's and the woman he choked-out's son.
At one point, police asked the boy about the other two women in Burton's car, to which the boy replied, "Those are my daddy's hoes."
Ha. Ha. Kids say the darnedest things!
According to authorities, Burton had been forcing a bunch of women to prostitute themselves at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, as well as at the Delano Hotel in Miami Beach.
State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle told the Miami Herald that many of the women were runaways.
Burton had forced at least six women into prostitution and, aside from being their pimp, was also apparently three of the women's baby daddy, fathering several Lil Burtons with them.
One of the women, an unidentified 31-year-old, had two children with Burton -- one of them being the boy cops spoke with.
Burton also allegedly forced women into prostitution in Nevada but was never convicted there.
On Tuesday, a judge sentenced Burton to 15 years in prison after he was found guilty of domestic battery by strangulation, deriving support from prostitution, kidnapping, and interfering with parental custody.
Burton's mother -- the boy's gangan -- Darlene, was also arrested and is awaiting trial for kidnapping.
This story had a wonderful heartfelt ending, didn't it?
