MILWAUKEE (AP) - Granny is a dominatrix, at least according to police in Milwaukee. A 49-year-old grandmother is charged with prostitution and running a bondage den in her basement.

Jacquess Dyer Patton-Ugan shares the home with her husband and two young grandsons. Police say they confiscated an extensive array of sex toys and bondage gear.

According to investigators, Patton-Ugan calls herself Madame Venus and posed on the Internet wearing part of a police uniform. Her husband has been charged with keeping a house of prostitution. But the police complaint says Richard Lyle Ugan denies knowing his wife charged for services.
