A woman who admitted running a brothel from a Glasgow flat is to lose £8,280 under proceeds of crime laws.
Jacqui Smillie, 67, was detained on 16 August 2011 following a police search of the property in Oban Drive.
She was later convicted and told to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work as part of a community payback order.
Investigations revealed she had profited from her crime by £8,280 and a confiscation order to recover that sum was granted at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
Lindsey Miller, head of the serious and organised crime division, said: "Jacqui Smillie was caught running an illegal brothel from a property on Oban Drive, Glasgow.
"Brothel-keeping, as with all criminal offences aimed at making a profit, is subject to the powers of the Proceeds of Crime Act.
"Our financial investigators found that Smillie had illegally profited by over £8,000, and today we have secured a confiscation order for the entirety of that sum."
