Police: Uncover Cop Tried To Run Off Teen Who Asked For Sex, But He Persisted

An undercover officer posing as a prostitute in Alabama tried more than once to run off a 13-year-old boy who asked her for sex, but police say the teen insisted and had to be arrested.

Authorities in Mobile said Wednesday the teenager has been charged with a misdemeanor count of loitering while looking for a prostitute. The next-youngest suspect nabbed in the sting was 22.

Police set up the sting in a residential area last week because of complaints about prostitutes trolling for business. Officer Christopher Levy says it's not clear exactly what the teen said to the officer, or
how she responded.

The boy's name was not released because of his age. He was taken to a juvenile detention center and released the same day. Fifteen people were arrested during the sting.

    legalize it and tax and regulate it.these stings should be illegal.they are entrapment 100%.the cops take women who are extremely attractive and dress them to the nines in sex wear and prance them around to entrap men..men will always approach a women that is as good looking as megan fox and showing they want your attention, i have come across one of these stings before,i dont do prostitutes, and the fact that the women were so much hotter than any prostitute i had ever seen is the only thing that kept me from talking to them. as usual the cops are having fun doing drug/drinking/sex projects instead of the work they should be doing and the idiot public is too stupid to realize the incredible waste of money we spend on prisons and paying for expansion of police forces to have them justify their existence chasing down people that are not criminals........violent crime should be cops only priority and we could cut the wasteful spending on excess law enforcement in HALF........you idiots!

    You see! Our kids are in a mess, for sure there. This Obama fella has really taken you guys, for sure. Our kids need to stay in school and learn to be good citizens, you know, saying the Pledge of Allegiance, and studying our Constitutional rights, like gun ownership. Ya know, it may sound all mavericky, but I think that if this kid could see another country from his house (like I can) instead of prostitutes in the street, this kind of thing wouldn't be happenin' there in the lower 48.

    Enough already! Legalize prostitution and tax it. It is not the government's business or "YOUR" business, if two consenting ADULTS want to exhange sex for money. So What?! What a waste of taxpayer dollars and law enforcment time.

    Shouldn't the 13 year old boy been arrested after the FIRST time he tried to get with the cop/prostitute? I mean, how many chances was she going to give the kid before actually arresting him? Maybe she felt bad for the kid? Idk.

    you people better wake up. prostitutes keep rape down. It gives guys an outlet from wives that won't anymore and young guys to learn.women are just as bad, they hire a yard-man or pool-boy.
