La Crosse Police Bust Two For Prostitution And No Escort License
It's not illegal to run an escort service in La Crosse. It is, however, illegal to be a prostitute. And for two area women, they found out that, yes, you can be charged with prostitution and not having an escort licence. But since the new law went into effect in 2012....how many people have gotten an escort license?
Sgt. Randy Rank with the La Crosse Police Department says that each licence will run you $250. He also says that out of the $13 thousand in fines doled out to 10 people failing to have that license, they have only collected $310 so far.
