Austintown prostitution suspect arraigned

aaron clark prostitution arraignment

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A man wanted as part of a local prostitution ring is free on bond.

Aaron Clark appeared in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court on Tuesday for his arraignment. Earlier this month, he was indicted on prostitution charges in relation to an undercover sting operation in which 10 were arrested on prostitution charges.

Mahoning County Sheriff’s deputies, Austintown police officers and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations discovered the operation after responding to ads on websites offering sexual services. The officers arranged a place to meet the suspects, and if they solicited the officers, they were arrested.

Clark pleaded not guilty to a promoting prostitution charge on Tuesday, and his trial was set for late November.
