Ivan Lavrusik, the 28-year-old man accused of pimping out his wife in an escort service he ran out of their Shakopee townhome, pleaded guilty this morning in Scott County District.
Under a plea agreement with prosecutors, Lavrusik pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution of an individual, a felony, and endangering a child with firearm access, a gross-misdemeanor. Two other charges — profiting from prostitution and drug possession — are to be dismissed.
Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 10. Prosecutors and Lavrusik agreed to a 60-day floor and 180-day cap of jail time.
Lavrusik’s wife, Luba, is charged with intention to participate in prostitution, a misdemeanor, as well as the same firearm charge as him. Her next court hearing is Dec. 16.
The couple, who have a 4-year-old daughter, are going through divorce proceedings.
