    Florida sting nabs 28 escorts advertising on Craigslist

    Craigslist Hooker Sweep Nets 28 Women

    Sheriff: Site remains "one-stop shop for all your prostitution needs"

    Charging that Craigslist remains a "one-stop shop for all your prostitution needs," a Florida sheriff yesterday announced the arrest of 28 women who allegedly advertised sexual services on the popular online classifieds site. Dubbed "Operation Hot Date," the undercover police action also netted several pimps who worked with the alleged hookers, said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

    The women, pictured in the mug shots on the following pages, offered a variety of sexual acts carrying prices between $125 and $800. Two of the alleged hookers who arrived for appointments with undercover officers were pregnant, and a third arrived with fur-lined handcuffs. In announcing the sweep, Judd criticized Craigslist for "facilitating prostitution" and deriving proceeds from the illegal act, since the site charges for the placement of the adult ads. Judd added that he wanted to press charges against the web site, which has previously pledged to law enforcement agencies that it would crack down on ads promoting prostitution.

    While most of the mug shots are scary, and some looked scared, it is amazing that a few of the girls actually put on pretty good and sassy smiles!

    I know. Like girl #2. She seems to be thinking: "What a fucking joke!!"

    One of the reasons why i decided to post this, even though i first heard of the story while reading TERB, is to warn Canadian sps about the dangers of doing business in the States. Same thing with the johns.

    The first three are doable. They are welcome to immigrate to Canada where the government doesn't waste valuable resources chasing consenting adults having sex for money.

    What a screwedball country you live in, dude!
    Liberals have destroyed both the US and Canada.

    Ish,

    I've done better than any of these women in my worst Montreal encounter. Damn, these are Craig's List women? Whew, I came so close to using CL once. What an escape. But some of the elite Florida women I've seen advertised on Eros Boston are utterly magnificent. I met one years ago and she was a goddess. But going through CL...peeeeeuuuuuuuu.

    cheers,

    Merlot

    While i do agree that most of the women pictured (without makeup, though) look rather homely, there are a few cute looking ones....like the first two on the first page. Let's put it this way: even 'Santillo' would declare it 'mission impossible' trying to make most of these women look hot & desirable.

    I agree

    Im in Chicago, they have major stings all the time. Law enforcement spends a ton of time and money on it, during the summer they snarred a high end las vegas girl that was touring chicago.

    I only hobby when I travel north.

    high paid white collar defense lawyers will tell their clients,
    before they take the mugshots,
    to look casual and look positive, like you're taking your drivers license/passport picture.
    do not look scared or negative,do not look freaked out.

    the smoking gun really is falling into the bullshit hypocrisy by putting these woman's photos
    on their popular site.

    but really this is the good old usa,
    where woman who breast feed their infants in public, get stares of disgust.

    The Smoking Gun files Freedom of Info requests every week and puts everyone's mugshots online.

    Once you get past the first page, theyre mostly pretty scary. I wonder if we can get the GOF/Devilish Glamour photographer to help them out a little in Polk county.

    Yes this is the bullshit we have to put up with in the US. The Goverment of the pressure groups by the pressure groups for the pressure groups.

    Down in Florida, the cops use bust stats to boost their productivity rating. Once a certain amount of arrest have been acheived, they can not have a lesser number after that. A lot of politics down there.

    First girl is pretty, but the rest goes from very average to

    Its stupid how much they fight against escorting in there country when there so much more severe crime in that country. I mean you can't even walk in central park at night without major risk... But no lets waist precious time and money on tracking women that have sex with consentent men who pay them...

    I mean ok to do something about street walker, but escort trought website...man seriously, it dosen't hurt anybody.

    Florida CL must have a "bargain escorts" section.
