Sources say a New York City correction employee was arrested on charges of prostitution after authorities say she offered an undercover cop sex for $120.
Geliesha Smith, 26, went by the name “Lisa” in ads offering sexual services on sites like Backpage.com, authorities say. Smith, who was said to have made over $75,000 working for the city, promised clients a “one of a kind experience” and boasted that she enjoyed kissing, the New York Daily News reports.
Last week, according to officials, Smith got a room at a Days Inn in Brooklyn, N.Y. She booked an appointment with a man she believed was a client only to discover after police stormed the room that he was an undercover cop, according to the report.
Peter Thorne, a Correction Department spokesman, told the Daily News, “We have zero tolerance for any illegal behavior on the part of the staff,” Thorne said. “This employee was immediately suspended and is being terminated.”
