ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Police have released another 13 mugshots of suspects charged with patronizing prostitutes in the first district. This part of a new program to stop sex workers by targeting their customers.

After “Johns” are arrested and charged, their mug shots will be made readily available to the media. Then they’ll receive a reminder card, which tells them when and where they were caught, and cautions them about STD’s. The card also warns them that their lewd behavior is illegal, and gives them a court date.

These patrons then face a $500 fine, and/or prison time.

    And the whores are free to roam .I guess the working girls are too cranked up to realize that cops are pretending to be hookers and are invading their territory. Why aren’t undercover police used to get the Working girls and plaster their mug shots on the site. Can you say ONE SIDED STORY?

    Legalize it! Control it, tax it, get it off the streets. You’re not going to stop it. It’s the world’s oldest profession. If a person can legally get paid to use their skills to cut your hair or make a drink, why not prostitution?

    You mean to tell me the released these citizens images before even being proved guilty in a court of law? Plainly says suspects. Shame shame. Guilty until proven innocent, keep hating and don’t bother learning the constitution.

    How about getting the hookers off the streets and hitting them with REAL sentences involving rehab and a chance to get an education leading to real jobs instead of busting them multiple times until they’re dead from their own vices? The johns will always be there. But if you make getting busted for prostitution something to be afraid of, it would be more effective
