DC officer accused of being pimp due in court

WASHINGTON (AP) - A former District of Columbia police officer accused of serving as a pimp for two minors is expected to plead guilty in the case.

Linwood Barnhill Jr. is scheduled to appear in federal court in Washington on Friday for a plea hearing, and online court records indicate he will plead guilty.

Barnhill was arrested in December after a search for a missing 16-year-old girl led officers to his apartment. Court records say the girl told police that she met Barnhill at a mall and that he set up a sexual encounter for her with an older man. Another 15-year-old girl also told police that Barnhill set up a sexual encounter for her.

Barnhill was on administrative leave when he was arrested. He is no longer employed by the police department.
