Two Franklin Women Charged With Prostitution In Online Sex Ad Investigation

June 28, 2013

A Lawrence County news report says two women who have been charged in a prostitution case in Moon Township in Allegheny County are from Franklin.

The Ellwood City Ledger identifies as prostitution suspects 20 year-old Samantha Anderson and 19 year-old Jessica Armant.

A Moon Township police detective says he answered an online sex ad, met the two women at a Moon motel in late March, and was told he could pay to watch them have sex with each other.  The detective says he was also offered services for himself.

The women supposedly were allowed to enter a drug rehabilitation program, but the detective says their ad was posted online again in May.  The detective says the women appeared to be living in their vehicle when they were arrested.

Charges reportedly include promotion of prostitution, conspiracy and possessing an instrument of crime — that is, the phone allegedly used for “appointments.”
