SIX MEN CONVICTED OF AGREEING TO ENGAGE IN PROSTITUTION

 

SANTA ANA – The Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA) convicted six men in May 2014 of agreeing to engage in prostitution. The defendants in these cases approached a woman, whom they believed to be a prostitute, in areas known for prostitution and human trafficking in Orange County. They agreed to engage in commercial sex with a woman or an undercover officer and were subsequently arrested by law enforcement.

 

The Santa Ana Police Department investigated these cases. Deputy District Attorney Eric Eastman of the HEAT Unit prosecuted these cases.

 

The defendants below each pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of agreeing to engage in prostitution. The defendants were each sentenced up to three years informal probation, up to 45 days in jail with the possibility of CalTrans in lieu of jail, and required to submit to AIDS testing and education. Some defendants must also submit to DNA testing and were required to donate up to $250 to the Victim Witness Emergency Fund.
