POLK COUNTY: 26 Women Arrested on Prostitution Charges Involving Craigslist Ads

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office just concluded a Prostitution sting which focused on the use of Craigslist’s online “adult services classifieds.” According to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, his agency’s investigation revealed that “Craigslist, despite saying they’re cleaning up their exotic section, continues to facilitate prostitution, and they derive proceeds from prostitution.” Judd says that “Craigslist encourages organized prostitution around the country by providing an outlet to sell sex services.”

While I generally like Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, I think we really need to second-guess whether, during these difficult economic times, he should have led an investigation where Polk County Sheriff Detectives prowled the personals sections last week for Lakeland, Tampa and Orlando adult services advertisements.The San Francisco company has been at the center of a national controversy about its erotic services section, prompting it to make changes to how advertisers post.
