How they Unfold
Police Prostitution Stings are used to catch people having sex with prostitutes. They post advertisement for prostitution websites such as private delights, backpage, yesbackpage to offer services Then they would wait for men to text or contact them and arrange a time to meet. This is done via female officers voice over the phone talking about sexual services and a place to meet.
They would end up arresting them for solicitation if they show up. This allows the police to catch men who want to buy patronizing prostitution and women who are providing. However, not all these cases are slam dunks for the prosecution. A prostitution charge has elements to it and in a criminal court the case has to be proven by a reasonable doubt.
Sex Buyers: What All Police Prostitution Stings Operation Having in Common.
Always Starts with Bargain Basement Pricing and Low to Almost No Reviews
They are all different types of people. But they all share one thing in common. They were all arrested after texting a number online. Usually thru Yesbackpage, privatedelights, bedpage and etc. All the numbers had one thing in common. The numbers involved accounts with 1 or 2 reviews and were bargain basement prices.
All Roads Lead Back To you
Another thing all Police Prostitution Stings have in common is the text message exchange. Almost all purchasers exchange phone messages (which discusses lingo and terms) with the police and have the cell phone on them when they are arrested at the door.
Unfortunately having a cellphone when caught in one of the many Police Prostitution Stings makes it harder for your criminal defense lawyer to defend the accusations of prostitution you are facing. One of the most common solicitation defenses or defense defense strategy is the either mere presence or just hanging out. In simpler terms nothing has been said yet.
However, by having their cell phone on them with the notifications turned on for the police to verify their identity. This closes the door on the mere presence defense. This is later used by the prosecution to say he was the person behind the phone.
Caught Red Handed with Contract
The final problem is discussing money for specific terms. For example, 350 for CIM and GFE. This spells out everything for law enforcement and makes it shooting fish in the barrel for them and turns your case into one of damage control as opposed to making it beatable.
Bottom line ,by having your phone on you, this helps the police establish that they were th ones texting at the other end of the phone. This police verify this by taking the clients cell phone and giving it a call to show their number shows up.
Police Prostitution Stings Target Men More Than Women.
Most men who were arrested for soliciting prostitutes will say it was their first time. But police say most of them are lying.
Police target men more than women in the name of human traffic. The penalties are more severe for men and even worse for pimps. The rationale from the prosecution is that sex workers should be treated as victims of crime, not criminals.
The men are all different colors and races. They are all different ages, from all walks in life. They are all different sizes, some are very big, others are very small. Some are black, some are white, some are Hispanic, some are Asian.
Married men are concerned that their wife will find out. College students come into police stations crying because their parents are going to kill them. They tell the police that they’ve been dating someone else, and they want to stop having sex before they marry. These men are humiliated by being caught, and they feel as if they’re failing at life.
