Franklin County Sting Nets 38 Prostitution Arrests

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office says 38 people have been arrested on more than 50 charges related to prostitution around the county. Sheriff Zach Scott says the investigation targeted traditional street-based prostitution, as well as people using hotels along the I-270 and Route 23 corridor to meet clients. Scott says charges include promoting prostitution, soliciting for prostitution, and drug possession. In one case, investigators reportedly found a three-year-old child waiting in a car while her mother was inside a hotel meeting with a client.
