A Waterbury woman who absconded probation that she was serving for a prostitution conviction – stemming from a Southington arrest – is being held in custody after having her probation revoked.

Brandy Milone, 32, had her probation revoked during a hearing last week in New Britain Superior Court after prosecutors said she violated the terms of the supervisory period. 

Milon was serving two years’ probation after being sentenced in October 2019, following her guilty plea to one count of prostitution of a person 16 or older. During a previous violation of probation hearing, court officials said Milone didn’t report to her supervising officer and “essentially absconded” from probation.

Court officials also said at the previous hearing that authorities had to use a website to locate Milone and arrest her, though they did not elaborate further.

Following the violation, Milone twice failed to answer to the charge and, each time, was ordered to be rearrested. The failure to appear charges were ultimately dropped when her probation was revoked.

In light of the revocation, state Department of Correction records indicate she is being held in custody at an area hospital. 

Milone’s initial arrest in June 2018 stemmed from investigators conducting an undercover operation in response to numerous complaints of prostitution being an issue at multiple Southington motels. An undercover officer, working with the department’s Special Investigations Unit, posed as a customer seeking sexual services. The officer, police said, contacted “several known prostitutes” who were looking for clients on social media and other websites.

The officer made arrangements to meet the suspects at a local motel, where “discussions of exchanging money for sexual conduct” were made, according to police. The operation netted two arrests.
