…the Sandy Springs detective told the woman she was under arrest.”But we had sex,” the woman said. “Can you do that?”
According to the story, an informal survey of other LE personnel reported that what the officer did crossed the line. Most prostitution laws state a crime is committed if the person “agrees, offers, OR engages” in the conduct – meaning that having actual sex is not necessary to arrest a person for prostitution.
However, Charles Olson, the general counsel of the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia, told the SSPD in an e-mail in Sept. 2008 that other cases from around the country indicated “what your officers did is a legitimate investigative technique.”
Indicating that Mr. Olson agrees that it is ok to be paid (the officer is on duty) to have sex with a prostitute. Does anyone else have a problem with this or do you also think it is ok?
