It must have seemed like a pretty straightforward gig.
A bachelor party. One last debauched send-off for the groom-to-be.
It turned out to be a prostitution sting. Arrested by Harris County (Texas) Sheriffs were 5 women and 3 men, charged with various prostitution related offenses. They invited people suspected of being involved in prostitution and urged them to bring young women to the party who would sell sexual favors. They also contacted women through mainstream Internet sites and invited them to the gathering to prostitute themselves.
I wonder how that went. “Hi, welcome to my bachelor party. Would you care to prostitute yourself?”
Kudos, Harris County Sheriff. Excellent use of what must be, in these recessionary times, a severely stretched municipal budget.
I feel safer already.
