Discharged Navy petty officer mentored young enlisted sailors while running a prostitution ring
As a Navy counselor, Joseph Fetterman was tasked with mentoring young enlisted sailors at Tinker Air Force Base near Oklahoma City. For at least four years, the petty officer 1st class spent his days at the air force base helping sailors map out a career path, plan for retirement and weigh their options for rate changes.
But during at least his final year in that job, Fetterman, 35, was enhancing his military pay with cash flow from a prostitution ring that he and his wife, Kanyarat, operated using women flown to America from Thailand, according to documents released by the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office.
Using undercover agents, local law enforcement linked the couple to online advertisements, a massage parlor and multiple apartments in the Oklahoma City area used for prostitution. The Fettermans eventually pleaded guilty in November to multiple charges related to prostitution and received a deferred sentence of two years, meaning that as long as they stay out of trouble, neither will serve jail time as a result of their plea deal.
