The police received a tip that a woman was soliciting men for sex for a fee at the
Tewksbury library. An undercover detective responded and quickly was engaged by
a woman exchanging notes offering sexual favors for $60. She was arrested for
prostitution and it is learned she had outstanding charges for drug possession.
The city of Boston through Mayor Walsh has recently announced a new tactic for
combating sex trafficking by targeting the John's when it comes to prostitution.
Usually it is the prostitute who is arrested and charged with a crime when it
comes to prostitution. This new tactic will offer more support and services to
prostitutes to help them get off the streets.
