Woman arrested for prostitution
A Stock Island woman was arrested after she agreed to trade a sexual act for $40.
An undercover operative was in the vicinity of 5th Street and McDonald Avenue at 4 p.m. recently when he met with 45 year old Dorothy Austin. He told her he was stressed and she offered sex as a de-stressor.
He told her he had $40 he would exchange for oral sex; she said she was the best on Stock Island and for that amount of money would take her time.
He paid her and, after she accepted the cash, she was arrested. Austin was charged with prostitution and she was booked into jail.
