Undercover Op Lands Prostitution Arrest

An undercover investigation has led to the arrest of a Pollocksville woman on prostitution charges.

Monika Welch is charged with solicitation for prostitution and maintaining a place for prostitution.

Jones County deputies say back in August they received information on possible prostitution in the county. They say during the investigation the 33-year-old Welch solicited an undercover investigator.

She was jailed on a $1,000 bond.

    Who are any of you to think you have the right to bring someones child into this? its no ones business. and if you would look it up there are about 50 escort services in onslow. AND escorting is LEGAL. All she needed was a license. Mind your own.

      Surprize me if she even showed up.She has 4 other charges for driving while license revoked/speeding.1 in Jones County,3 in Onslow.Already had been arrested for 2 failure to appears on those charges.All public info,check out court calendars.So she is not a poor woman just couldn't find a job and had children or parents to care for.She obviously has no regard for the laws.Wonder how the home owner feels?

        thanks for that info. there is an interview on one of the tv news websites with the landlord, talking about trying to get her off the river. the only person i feel bad for in all this is her daughter, because she will have to go to school and everyone will know. hopefully someone will get her away from the river rat and give her an appropriate upbringing, unless its already too late!

    ehh I think we should enact the same laws that are in Nevada. Licensure, STD checks etc. You'll never be able to stop people from selling sex, so make it legal and tax it.

    So. Where is her daughter in all of this? Was she placed in foster care?

      I was wondering the same thing! Hopefully, she's far away from her. Awesome role model, Monika!

      Hopefully she is not with this poor excuse of a mother!

    It's good to see an honest woman for a change. Just cough up the money honey.

    Why do people also have to be so cruel as to how a person looks. If we have mirrors, most of us do not look and see a perfect image in the mirror. I don't know why she did what she did, it is not for me to say, maybe she had hungry children to feed or older parents to look after. Maybe she has an addiction that she can no longer control. I do not think this would be a career most people would choose if there were any alternative for them. I hope she gets herself straight and finds gainful employment and happeniness.

    While I understand that prostitution is illegal, there are far more urgent matters that the police need to be addressing. Where are the photos of her customers? This is the equivalent of dragging her into the town square and throwing cabbages at her. Interesting how many men commenting here are so quick to condemn her, not because of her behavior, but because she's not attractive enough for them to justify paying her for it. If she was at a bar, and someone bought her 60 dollars worth of drinks, this wouldn't be a story...

    Ever considered that marriage is a form of legalized prostitution? It all starts with an engagement ring. Is that not an object that equals money in exchange for sexual rights? What's so funny and factual is that it continues on from there. The house...the car...the clothes...and every other "gift" the guy gives. It's nothing more than buying sexual favors under the guise of the term marriage. The same is true in any other boyfriend/girlfriend situation as well.

      No, Marriage is a lot more than a man buying the wife a gift,house etc. It's two people that come together to build a life and make a family...both people work together to pay bills...
