A friend of my used the services of an escort 4 days ago. Everything went smooth and it did not seem like a sting. He says everything leading up to the event was discreet. Could the escort be a confidential informant and could he be charged with patronizing at a later date through an arrest warrant? And, could his information (phone number and address) be jeopardized if she is caught at a later date? It all occurred at his privateresidence and nothing was recorded.
Your question is not clear are you saying you (I mean your friend) was served with a warrant for patronizing a prostitute? If so he should call a lawyer and have the lawyer find out what is going on -
I hope you found this response to be helpful. If so, your clicking "helpful" and/or "best answer" helps my Avvo rating and would be appreciated. This answer is merely my personal view on the subject and is not intended to constitute legal advice nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. Further, my response is based upon the limited facts that were provided in the question and therefore my view might well be different if I was informed of additional or different facts or circumstances. Moreover, I am only licensed to practice law in the state of New York. You should not take any action or refrain from taking any action in reliance upon my view set forth herein, rather you should consult counsel who is licensed to practice in the state having jurisdiction over this matter.
If the sexual act took place, then the person was not a CI. Police don't allow the act to take place in prostitution stings since its not necessary for the prosecution and would result in a public backlash. That being said, maybe this escort will be arrest in the next day or two and tell the police all about you. When breaking the law, anything can happen.
If everything "went smooth" and sexual activity actually occurred, then this was not a sting. Can he be charged after the fact? Possibly, but unlikely.
