Duncanville police arrest third person in Cherry Pit case
Deena Clingman, 37, has been arrested on suspicion of engaging in organized crime.
Duncanville police have made a third arrest related to the Cherry Pit swingers club. Deena Clingman, 37, has been arrested on suspicion of engaging in organized crime. That could bring a sentence of anywhere from 5-99 years or life in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
According to police reports Clingman was an employee of the Cherry Pit and received “fun money” and tips from patrons. Fun money is reportedly used to purchase sexual favors at the club. On Oct. 28, a jury found club owner Jim Trulock guilty on all 10 counts brought against him. The battle is far from over and there are additional charges pending against the club ownership. Also, comments from Cherry Pit attorney Ed Klein seem to indicate an appeal is likely.
