Agreeing to pay for a sexual act is usually charged as Soliciting for Prostitution or Patronizing a Prostitute in Denver, Aurora, and Castle Rock. A pastor was recently arrested for Prostitution crimes after a police sting operation. According to the report, the pastor had visited a massage parlor that was under investigation. The parlor was allegedly being used as a place of prostitution, where men would pay for sexual acts during their massage. Upon his arrest, the pastor admitted to paying for sex. The owner of the parlor was also arrested and charged with Human Trafficking for Sexual Servitude as it was alleged that the women were forced to work there and prostitute themselves.
