  Dozen Busted On Prostitution Charges  
  All Had Their Day In Court:   December 31, 1969 Edition  
      On June 19, Boardman police used a web site connection that resulted in the arrests of 11 women and one man being charged with prostitution-related charges.
      The women were contacted based on their posts on a website where they used aliases to solicit prostitution, police said. Undercover officers contacted the women via phone numbers provided at that website, and a room at the Red Roof Inn, 1051 Tiffany Blvd., was set-up with recording devices.
      Following is a review of what happened in court from the arrests made in the prostitution operation that was conducted by Boardman police, the FBI and a Mahoning Valley Violent Crimes Task Force. All of those arrested appeared in Boardman Court, where Judge Joseph Houser sits on the bench.
      Constance Adams, 24, of 2975 Creek Rd., New Waterford, was charged with soliciting and possession of criminal tools.
      The caucasion, 5-11, 145-lb. blonde-haired, blue-eyed woman had the criminal tools charge dismissed on Aug. 7 and the same day she was found guilty of a reduced charge on the soliciting count. Adams was fined $100, placed on a year’s probation, ordered to perform 45 hours of community service, ordered to undergo AIDS testing and referred to a state-certified facility for psychological testing.
      According to police, she had solicited sex on the web using the name ‘Brooklyn Barbie,’ and she said she would charge $170/hr.
      Unemployed, Adams received free legal counsel.

She was found guilty of the criminal tools charge, fined $100, ordered to pay $70 in court costs, given a 180 day suspended jail sentence, placed on 12 months probation, ordered for psychological and AIDS assessment.

      Unemployed, Maxwell got free legal counsel and the criminal tools charge was dismissed. On Aug. 5, she was found guilty on the drug and soliciting charges, fined $200, her driver’s license was suspended for a year, she was placed on probation for a year, ordered to perform 40 hours of community service, ordered to undergo AIDS testing, and referred to a state-certified facility for drug management and psychological testing.
      Police said she used the named ‘London’ on the web site used to contact her.
