Ann Arbor news reports that six women were arrested during a prostitution sting last night. The women allegedly offered sex to undercover police officers. The women were taken to Washtenaw County Jail, and expected to be arraigned later today.
Police agencies, such as those in Washtenaw County, have a reputation for setting up such stings to either arrest prostitutes or those allegedly soliciting the sexual services of a prostitute. Both prostitution and solicitation are considered sex crimes and may subject you to jail-time, mandatory testing for sexually transmitted diseases and placement of your name on the Michigan Sex Crimes Registry.
If you have been arrested for prostitution or solicitation, it’s important to hire an experienced sex crimes defense lawyer to fight back aggressively. When law enforcement sets up stings and arrests numerous people, often the charges of each individual are overstated or mischaracterized. It is important that your own attorney investigate the specific allegations against you individually and prepare the best possible defense for your situation.
