Man Is Convicted Of Procuring Prostitutes For Another

John Moleterno was arrested during an undercover prostitution sting in Mentor

A man who was arrested during a prostitution sting in Mentor was convicted of procuring a prostitute for another.

John Moleterno, 45, pleaded no contest to the charge and was found guilty in Mentor Municipal Court.

A "no contest" plea is when a suspect neither admits to nor disputes the charges against him or her.

Moleterno is scheduled to be sentenced April 8. He could receive probation or up to six months in jail for the crime.

He was arrested by Mentor Police in April.

Moleterno advertised the sexual services of two women on Craigslist, Mentor Police Lt. Tim Allen said at the time of Moleterno's arrest.

An undercover police officer arranged with Moleterno to meet the women at a motel in Mentor. After Moleterno split the money with the women, police arrested him, Allen said.

Moleterno was initially charged with promoting prostitution. However, he later pleaded to the lesser count of procuring a prostitute for another, instead.
