Oxford Crime Report: Monday, January 4


Christy Fields – Promoting Prostitution

C Fields

Kristina Murphy – Promoting Prostitution

K Murphy

On December 30, 2015, the Oxford police department’s Investigations Division, the Lafayette County Metro Narcotics Unit and the Federal Bureau of Investigations worked together on a Prostitution / Sex Trafficking Operation. They made two arrests for Promoting Prostitution and identified a possible victim of sex trafficking. Christy Fields (21 of Memphis, Tennessee) and Kristina Murphy (24 of Memphis, Tennessee) were arrested for Promoting Prostitution.

These two individuals are identified from a previous investigation where an (undisclosed) hotel staff reported suspicious activity and possible prostitution within the hotel rooms. The officers initially arrested for narcotics possession and returned a missing person to her family in Memphis. Officers believed these individuals were prostituting out of the hotel rooms but they were unable to prove so at that point.

Then during the week of December 30, these same individuals posted ads on the internet where the officers then set up an operation to confirm that these individuals were working as prostitutes.

For their Initial Appearance in the court, Fields and Murphy were taken before Judge McLarty. Fields’ bond was set at $10,000, but Murphy’s bond was revoked due to her being out on another felony bond in Lafayette County.

Oxford police responded to the following incidents: eight disturbances, six suspicious activities, two alarms, two malicious mischief, a motorist assist, a petit larceny, a noise violation, a fire department assist, an animal complaint, a 911 hang-up call, a careless driver, and a burglary on Thacker Road.
