City of Kent Prostitution Arrests - Taking it to the "Johns"

Posted by Keith Hall | May 27, 2015 | 0 Comments

The south King County cities of Kent, Auburn, Renton, SeaTac, and Tukwila have launched a program of arrests and prosecutions intended to get tough on those who hire prostitutes. 

Kent Municipal Court Judge Karli Jorgensen recently went on the record in a Seattle Times interview and expressed her belief that cases like these should no longer be eligible for "diversion" and that those who are convicted should be sentenced to attend a 10-week intervention program as a condition of their sentences.

Read the article here, in which the King County Prosecutor, Judge Jorgensen and others discuss the new "buyer beware" approach to prostitution arrests.  The City of Kent has made three arrests "buyers" of sexual services for every single arrest of a prostitute.
