A Bay Area-based website that for years catered to prostitutes and johns was seized Wednesday by federal investigators, who arrested a man and a woman accused of running it.
"While we are certainly concerned with the issue of sex trafficking, this misguided effort only pushes the most marginalized of us further into the underground." Bay Area police officers have often utilized the site to sting alleged pimps and prostitutes.Last year, undercover officers in Fairfield contacted an alleged prostitute on the website to set up a date with her - a meeting that led to the arrest of her and her pimp."In my experience prosecuting these types of cases, the site is associated with the setting up of dates that often involve women who are being exploited or are victims of human trafficking," said Al Serrato, an assistant district attorney in San Mateo County."I view it as a positive development that the federal authorities were able to take such strong action against it."
