HOPKINTON - Massena-based state police charged Dean M. Lamphere, 60, of 2928C state Route 11B, Hopkinton, with third-degree promotion of prostitution, a class D felony and tampering with physical evidence, a class E felony. He was arraigned by Massena Town Justice James M. Crandall and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility and was released on bail set at $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
Additional sex crimes charges may be pending, police said.
Court documents allege Lamphere paid and arranged for prostitutes to engage in sexual conduct with men between 2011 and May 2013. The women ranged in ages from 20 to 32. He allegedly destroyed two video tapes that contained evidence supporting a promoting prostitution investigation. Troopers alleged Lamphere burned those videos in a fire pit behind his garage.
Investigations are in what troppers are calling the infinant stages
Currently there are four women involved in the charges against Lamphere and, according to police, were put into positions where they owed him money. In lieu of money, the women allegedly work as hookers for Lamphere.

I find it hard to believe that he forced them into anything. It's not like they were runaways in the streets of NYC and some pimp is threatening their life or something. They probably agreed that this would be the story if anything went down! They were probably willing to be pimped out. Just a theory, I could be wrong.

they owed him money - why do you think they owed him money? odds are high they were drug users- he supplied the drugs- then they owed him. not too hard to figure out.all 4 women can;t be lying about this. his wife is an enabler. he has gotten away with shit all these years because he could. this time his face is all over tv-newspapers and the whole small community is shamed by shameful behavior. regardless of what these women were- he victimized them- used them and now he will answer for it publicly.and yes there was another incident in hopkinton years ago- a guy hooking out his own wife. classy eh? lots of sickos out there- even in northern ny. some people will stop doing business with him because some people don;t believe its ok to shit on and use other people like this was.nevada ok- but not in our state of ny.dustin trimm tried to run a porn shop in another town- that didn;t last either. nothing like this does. if any of the guys using these women are locals i bet they are shitting their pants worried someone will find out who they are. they are just as guilty as dean lamphere is.dean has a decent family so they must be pretty embarrassed by this shit flying now. hang your head dean- hang it in shame you lame excuse for a man.

The one girl that was on tv, worked in the bottle redemption part, and is living with his son dean, I'm sure she is a user, he wouldn't advance her pay for drugs so she did this
