Woman arrested for prostitution at Monmouth County motel

An Asbury Park woman was arrested for prostitution at a Monmouth County motel, according to an article in the Asbury Park Press. The woman, who has several other outstanding warrants, was taken into custody at the Monmouth County Jail after failing to post bail.

 

Prostitution is defined in New Jersey as “sexual activity with another person in exchange for something of economic value, or the offer or acceptance of an offer to engage in sexual activity in exchange for something of economic value.” Soliciting someone to engage in prostitution is generally a fourth degree crime, punishable by up to 18 months in prison, but soliciting a person under the age of 18 is a third degree crime and carries a penalty of 3 to 5 years in prison.
