Honeymoon Prostitution Arrest: Sting Nabs 92 In Florida
A prostitution sting in Florida busted a whopping 92 people over a period of four days, Orlando authorities say.
The sting was set up at a local hotel and ultimately captured 39 prostitutes and 12 pimps; among those arrested were a youth minister and a man who was in Florida for his honeymoon.
21-year old Mohammed Ahmed was a newlywed who was apparently trying to arrange for a prostitute to come and service him along with his wife; unfortunately for him, he wound up involved in the massive undercover operation.
Authorities say that prostitution busts are often connected to other crimes and that solicitation is just as illegal when it’s done online, as it mostly was in this case.
“The negative social costs of prostitution hurt families, children, and communities, including the spreading of infectious diseases,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. “The nexus between prostitution and other crime, such as illegal drugs, violence against women, and human trafficking, is a real problem.”
No word yet on whether the newlywed’s bride had prior knowledge of his plans or not.
