Court allows Bellevue Inn

Court allows Bellevue Inn

to reopen under strict rules

General Sessions Criminal Court Judge Larry Potter signed a consent order Monday in which Pravien Patel, owner of the Bellevue Inn, 1250 S. Bellevue Blvd., admitted to operating a nuisance and is allowed to reopen if proactive steps are taken to prevent illegal activity, specifically prostitution, at the motel.

Assistant District Attorneys Bobby Carter and Valerie Smith, and motel owner representative Rex L. Brasher Jr. approved the order. The owner could be held in contempt of court if there is any failure to comply with the order, in which case he could be fined and sent to jail.

The D.A.s office, with the assistance of the Memphis Police Department Vice and Narcotics Unit and the West Tennessee Violent Crime and Drug Task Force, closed the Bellevue Feb. 28.

The specific conditions under which the motel may reopen, include the following: motel rooms may not be rented by the hour or for less than one rental day; accurate records must be kept at all times of the names of all motel guests and the manner and amount of payment; the motel shall not rent rooms to known prostitutes, and owners must post a No Loitering sign on the premises.
