How did Barry Manthe’s Sex Trafficking operation exist for nearly 3 decades in the Mid-Missouri area? According to those who worked in one of his many brothels and those who investigated the case, Barry gained compatriots in law enforcement who protected him in exchange for his cooperation as a confidential informant. Those close to the story explain how the relationship worked.

Police Protected Pimp utilizes interviews, police reports and other evidence to explore the relationship between the Columbia Missouri Police Department and Barry Manthe, a longtime sex trafficker who was granted virtual immunity in exchange for acting as a police informant.
