According to Plainville, Connecticut police, a woman worked as a prostitute out of her home and advertised her services online. Jennifer Roy, 34, is accused of soliciting an undercover police officer while her toddler was in the next room.
Police said they started investigating Roy about two months ago after a detective assigned to Internet crimes saw her ad on the online classified advertising site Craigslist. Craigslist does not allow advertising illegal activity. Although Roy’s ads did not explicitly say what she was offering, an officer who was working undercover went to Roy’s house at 51 Bartlett St. on Saturday.
He said he was responding to her ad and told her how much money he had. According to police, Roy responded that the amount of money he had was enough for an hour of sex. Other officers arrested Roy after receiving a signal from the officer speaking with her.
Roy was charged with prostitution and risk of injury to a minor. Her 17-month-old son was in another room when the officers went to her home.
