Ottawa man arrested in prostitution sting

Posted by wlpo on February 18, 2011

A major prostitution sting in Joliet included a man from Ottawa and a woman from Morris.

According to the Joliet Herald News, “Operation Room Service” began last month after hotel owners believed their businesses were being used for prostitution.  Duane Einhaus of Ottawa was arrested yesterday in the sting for solicitation of prostitution.  Einhaus was a candidate for Ottawa City Council in 2007.  Also arrested from the area was Kristen Welch of Morris.  She was picked up last month for felony prostitution.

In all, 33 people were arrested in the online prostitution sting.
