Were You Named in an Escort Sting? Law enforcement agents are increasingly aggressive at seeking out and charging people accused of soliciting prostitution and soliciting minors for sexual exploitation. Police often troll massage parlors and online sites and publications such as the "escort services" ads on Craigslist, Cityvibe and the Erotic Review in search of potential violators. Were you named in an escort sting or charged with solicitation of prostitution through a Craigslist ad or some other public forum? However incredulous you may be over the charges, if they are real, you are in real trouble and your need for a defense lawyer is urgent.
