Suspect Claims 'Money Addiction' in Prostitution Sting
The 29-year-old woman was arrested in a prostitution sting, after allegedly placing an ad in Backpage.com.
Police say that a 29-year-old woman was working inside her home as a prostitute while her boyfriend and baby waited outside for her, according to media reports.
Danielle Barron was arrested Saturday by the Bradenton Police Department, after she allegedly placed an ad in Backpage.com and then met an undercover agent at her house, according to WTSP.com.
Barron is accused of demanding and accepting $200 from the undercover detective.
Police say that Barron admitted to working as a prostitute for the past two years, but said she engaged in the illegal activity because she suffers from a money addiction.
The woman's baby was taken into protective care by child welfare officials, according to WTSP.com.
