That’s what this is:
A woman has been charged with prostitution in Connecticut after calling police to complain about how she was being treated by a pimp. Police say they did not find the pimp when they arrived at a Super 8 Motel in West Haven on Sunday, but they did find 35-year-old Jennifer Lowery with a man they describe as a customer.
Police charged Lowery with prostitution and 60-year-old Richard Burford of New Haven with patronizing a prostitute.
Police say Lowery told them she thought it would take police longer to show up, so she decided to conduct some business while waiting. (source)
Really, if you’re a legislator and you want to perpetuate exploitation of and violence against sex workers, please do make prostitution illegal. Sex workers will not call the police if they are in danger, and pimps will be safe. Makes me think of this.
