Bonita Springs Woman Arrested for Allegedly Attempting to Perform Sex Act on Undercover Officer
A 47-year-old Bonita Springs woman was arrested Wednesday after she allegedly tried to perform a sex act on an undercover deputy.
The woman faces charges of prostitution.
According to police, an undercover detective paid the woman $50 to give him a half-hour massage. The detective apparently received a back massage while lying face down and was then asked to roll over. The detective claims that the woman tried to perform a sex act on him, which in turn lead him to signal for other undercover deputies.
The woman was arrested and according to records, does have a current massage therapist license with the business.
If you are facing a charge of prostitution, then you are undoubtedly in a difficult situation. Due to the sexual nature of these charges, you cannot afford to sit back and hope that they go away on their own.

Prostitution-related offenses are considered severe criminal charges because they are classified as sex crimes. If arrested for prostitution, it is best to invoke your right to remain silent and refrain from saying anything to the arresting officers as anything you say could be used against you in court. Regardless of your innocence, you do not want anything you have said to further complicate your situation.
Prostitution charges carry stiff penalties. If convicted, the consequences can result in hefty fines and jail or prison time.
