New York City Correction Worker Arrested for Prostitution

by Amna El Tawil
A city correction department employee could see how it’s really like behind bars after she was arrested at one of Brooklyn’s motels for moonlighting as a prostitute. She set up a profile at BackPage’s dating section. Her bio reads: “Are you ready for a MEMORABLE time? Then stop here and let me give you my special touch. I’m more than sure I can send you away with a SMILE. So let’s have a nice time tonight ……. Treat yourself to an exotic beauty ….who provides quality entertainment…
The profile also features raunchy photos as well as a video of a correction worker twerking. However, her last customer turned out to be an undercover police officer who signaled for backup after she offered to have sex with him, and set a price for $120. Officers barged inside her room at the Days Inn in Sunset Park and took her into custody.
The 26-year-old is accused of offering to perform a sexual act in exchange for money to an undercover officer. She was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal court and released without bail. A department spokesman, Peter Thorne, said Smith, who earned $75,000, will be fired. He said: “We have zero tolerance for any illegal behavior on the part of staff. This employee was immediately suspended and is being terminated.”
The New York Post reports: “Sources said Smith had access to “sensitive information” in her role at the Federal Narcotics Task Force, which is comprised of several law enforcement entities.
The agencies, which include the NYPD, US Marshals, and the Drug Enforcement Administration, coordinate and share information on narcotics-related cases.”
