Questioned by a Colorado State Patrol trooper, Salmon said she knew sexual acts happened in her two Colorado Springs massage parlors, but told women working there to keep to her rule, according to an arrest affidavit obtained Friday.

Troopers arrested her Oct. 22 on suspicion of pimping and pandering, or arranging prostitution. She is out of jail Friday on $10,000 bond, according to court records.

Salmon's attorney, Jeremy Loew, said Friday that if there had been any prostitution going on at the massage parlors, his client had no knowledge of it.

A Fort Carson soldier accused of asking more than a dozen girls and young women to watch him masturbate for money was sentenced Thursday to 10 years of sex offender intensive supervised probation.

Duston Ridner, 44, pleaded guilty in August to one count of sexual obscenity, although he admitted to the other charges in court Thursday. He was arrested in May after reports that he had solicited girls and women between ages 12 and 22 from a red pickup truck under the guise of asking for directions.

Ridner did not touch or expose himself to any of those he solicited, but the sex offender program is strict. He is prohibited from contacting anyone younger than 18, including his own children.

Antonio Domena, 44, and Sheldon Long, 41, were charged Wednesday with first-degree murder and retaliation against a witness in the death of Darryl Givens following a review as part of the city's Cold Case Project.
