Fayetteville mom, sons face child trafficking, prostitution charges

Posted May 20, 2014

— Cumberland County authorities have charged a mother and her two adult sons with more than two dozen felony charges stemming from recent allegations of child prostitution.

Arrest warrants allege Delicia Anonietete McKoy, 43, Derek Wayne McKoy, 24, and Patrick Eugene McKoy, 24, all of 2567 Bel Aire St., used the unidentified child for the purpose of sexual servitude.

Delicia McKoy, jailed Tuesday under a $30,000 bond, faces two counts of promoting the prostitution of a minor and one count each of human trafficking of a child victim and sexual servitude of a child victim.

Derek McKoy, in jail under a $695,000 bond, faces seven counts each of human trafficking of a child victim, sexual servitude of a child victim and promoting the prostitution of a minor. He also faces one count of abduction of a child.

Patrick McKoy is charged with one count each of human trafficking of a child victim, sexual servitude of a child victim and promoting the prostitution of a minor. He was in the Cumberland County jail Tuesday under a $75,000 bond.

Sheriff Earl "Moose" Butler said more arrests are expected in the case.

Authorities say the May 14 arrest of a registered sex offender, 38-year-old Tullous Kenyard Burrow Sr., led investigators to the McKoys.

Burrow was arrested on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender after investigators discovered he was not living at the home he listed with the North Carolina Offender Registry.

According to the registry, Burrow, 38, served three years' probation after being convicted Dec. 7, 2007, of indecent liberties with a minor and second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor for crimes involving a 15-year-old child.

    Bail set at $30,000? You have to be joking me. When are they going to start taking crimes committed by women seriously. I'm sure she'll say that her sons forced her to do it. Women are never responsible for their crimes.

    Yes, it is reasonable to question the responsibility of their friends and neighbors to the general public as it relates to their crimes. How were they able to hide the prostitution of what I presume is her daughter? There may be a reasonable explanation, but the question is absolutely valid.

    AMEN TO THAT but now they can earn pizza and chicken wings for good behavior!

    Hope they get to experience what they put the child through while they are in jail. Child abusers generally are considered the lowest of the low by the rest of the prison or jail population.

    They'll all do plenty of time in hell.

    Sadly, they'll probably hardly do any time and will be back at it again.

    I think he was just implying that these type of people always stick up for each other, no matter how bad their crime/s. They'll just blame it on "the man", "society", Republicans, their poor upbringing...whatever. They have no shortage of excuses.

    Are you insinuating that their families and neighbors were somehow implicit in their sick and highly illegal endeavors?

    I'm sure each and every one of these folks pictured, are honest and good people. Just ask their families and neighbors.
