The Arizona Attorney General’s Office says Mikal Lee Smith, the son of ex-NFL coach Lovie Smith and former University of Arizona player, has been indicted after a Chandler police investigation accusing him of running a prostitution ring.
Between December 2018 and September 2019, Smith and Aprel Mae Rasmussen operated and maintained an illegal prostitution enterprise. Smith and Rasmussen allegedly induced and encouraged an adult female victim to “engage in acts of prostitution for over two months.”
Smith reportedly used surveillance and threats of retaliation to keep the victim under his control.
Smith is being held on a $100,000 bond and his arraignment is slated for Sept. 10, according to court documents.
The 43-year-old served as an assistant coach under his father with the Chicago Bears and the defensive backs coach Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
