On Wednesday, July 10, 2013, three people were charged in connection to a St. Charles Prostitution Ring. The three suspects promoted their business through online advertisements referencing “massages.” One suspect was described as having at least 3 prostitutes working for him.
In Missouri, law enforcement agencies have been aggressive in not only arresting but in prosecuting individuals charged with prostitution and solicitation. Officers frequently conduct sting operations, as was the case here. Maryland Heights Police went undercover to arrest the individuals. St. Charles officers are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of residents.
The penalties and consequences for prostitution charges and solicitation charges can be very serious, and include incarceration, fines, probation, community service, court-ordered counseling and AIDS testing.
In this case the bond is set at $7,500 for the two females, and $10,000 for the male alleged to be in charge.
