Authorities say they arrested nine men in a prostitution sting in central Arkansas on Thursday night.

The undercover investigation took place at an undisclosed location, the Faulkner County sheriff's office said in a news release Friday.

William Floyd, 62; Keaseem Hendrickson, 32; Christopher Henderson, 39; Edwin Kerr, 44; John Leavell, 30; Oscar Lopez, 21; Steven Sipes, 51; Kelby Sutterfield, 24; and Johnny Hubbard, 43, were charged with sexual solicitation. Floyd, Henderson and Leavell also face drug charges, and Hendrickson was charged with fleeing.

At least seven of the men were later released from Faulkner County jail on bail.

The aim of the operation was to reduce demand for prostitution as well as other crimes, the sheriff's office said.

I'm sure that prostitution being illegal will make people not do it. Prostitution hasn't been around that long. It's probably just a fad. ha ha ha

This Crime of paying money for Sex will never be contained, It supposedly is the oldest profession in the World, Go out and Arrest a Few Drug Dealers, Or catch a Burglar or a Robber at some of these convenience stores. Leave this Poor Girls and their Clients alone. Make Love not War. Everyone needs a little Love now and then,

Charge them, prosecute them and send them to prison for several months so they can feel what it's like to be victimized by men.
