“Aggravated Pimping”

CNN reports that French authorities have charged former International Monetary Fund chief and alleged sex offender Dominique Strauss-Kahn with “aggravated pimping.”  The charges stem from DSK’s alleged involvement with a prostitution ring.  Here is how CNN explains the charge:

The charge alleges involvement in the habitual operation of a prostitution racket. Specifically, “aggravated’ means on a regular and involved basis, and “pimping” means actually facilitating a prostitution operation, not just being a customer.
