An Exeter (New Hampshire) psychologist charged with running a prostitution ring in Portsmouth turned himself in to police today.

Alexander Marino, who has an office at 24 Front St. in Exeter, has been wanted by police since Saturday. He faces prostitution and drug charges.

Marino, 38, is now being held on $16,000 bail. He will likely appear in court tomorrow.

Police issued an arrest warrant for Marino Saturday after an investigation alleged he allowed a prostitution operation to be run out of his apartment at 595 Sagamore Ave. in Portsmouth.

Last week Portsmouth police arrested a woman on a prostitution charge when they discovered her in Marino’s apartment with drugs. A man who was also in the apartment climbed out a window and jumped while holding an opened condom, according to Portsmouth police Capt. Corey MacDonald.

Police also arrested Jim Parra, 22, of Kittery, Maine, who turned himself in Saturday.

Police said the prostitution operation may extend into Manchester and the Portsmouth, Maine area. It was advertised on the website http://www.backpage.com, police said.
