Second Arrest Made in Northeast Iowa Prostitution Investigation

A second arrest has been made in a northeast Iowa prostitution investigation.

January 24th, the Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office arrested 52-year-old Trent Fitzpatrick of Oelwein, charging him with pimping, a Class D felony. According to court documents, Fitzpatrick received a “predetermined amount of cash for driving two female prostitutes” to a residence in Fort Atkinson.

The sheriff’s office said that as a result of Fitzpatrick’s arrest, several subsequent search warrants would be executed. Tuesday (Jan. 31), they announced the arrest of 29-year-old Nicole Burgos, also of Oelwein, on two counts of aggravated misdemeanor prostitution. She was charged after she was transported to the Winneshiek County Jail in Decorah from the Fayette County Jail in West Union.

Authorities add that this remains an active and ongoing investigation with additional arrests/charges forthcoming.

Court records show Burgos was arrested by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office on November 5th on six drug-related charges ranging from serious misdemeanors to a Class B felony. She has pleaded not guilty to those charges and is currently scheduled for trial on Monday, February 6th in Fayette County District Court.
