Allen E. Brown (pictured above) delivered an early Mother’s Day present that no one in the family will ever forget. He is sending his mother, Tecora Brown, on a one-way trip to prison after telling authorities of her involvement in a New Jersey prostitution ring.

Brown, 73, (pictured below) pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution between April 2000 and December 2004, and prosecutors have asked for probation of one to five years for the elder Brown.

Her 48-year-old son, who is known as Prince, pleaded guilty to first-degree racketeering and second-degree theft by extortion. The state has recommended that he receive 20 years in prison.

In exchange for his plea, Allen Brown was forced to do what most sons would consider unthinkable: to snitch on his mother, who owned the Society Hill home where he ran his prostitution ring.

Seems like pimping was a family business, since the prostitution ring also included a niece and a nephew of Tecora Brown, authorities said.

It would be an understatement to say that the Brown family is a bit dysfunctional. In truth, the Brown’s bearly qualify as human.

Allen Brown’s crimes of taking vulnerable young girls and twisting their minds with beatings, alcohol and drugs to have sex with strangers are unthinkable. Luckily, it will be a long time before he sees life outside of a prison cell.

And no one should be more sensitive to the horrors of that crime than an another woman. So Tecora Brown likely has an especially hot place in Hades waiting for her to pay for her involvement in this crime.

What kind of “mother” would allow young girls to be abused like this under her roof?

No one in this family deserves an ounce of compassion but I still don’t understand why Allen Brown testified against his mother. Like all of a sudden he developed a conscience.

It’s not like Allen Brown won any great reduction in his sentence. After all, he is still looking at 20 years if prosecutors get their way.

I understand that Tecora Brown is no innocent bystander in this case. She was doing wrong and will pay the price for it, but for some reason, I feel that knowing her son turned on her in an attempt to reduce his own sentence will make for an especially bitter Mother’s Day 2010 for the Brown family.
