State v. Short

Ohio Court of Appeals
2017 WL 3446990 (2017)

  • Written by Sharon Feldman, JD

Facts

A detective who was participating in an undercover prostitution sting operation at a Marriott hotel placed an advertisement in the “sex for money” section of a website. Kenneth Short (defendant) texted the detective, asked the detective if she was free that day, and, in response to the detective’s question, indicated what sexual activity he was seeking. The detective texted Short her hourly and half-hourly rate, and Short responded, “Ok . . . where.” The detective told Short to come to the Marriott. Short requested a photograph of the detective’s breasts to ensure she was not a police officer. Short met the detective at the hotel. Short fled when he saw other detectives in the hotel room but was arrested after getting into his car. Short was convicted of soliciting and argued on appeal that the state (plaintiff) failed to prove that he had made an offer to have sex for hire because he had merely accepted an offer made by the undercover officer.
