Hear Sexy Sheriff's Deputy Woo Callers in Underage Prostitution Sting
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office arrested 30 people last week who had thought they were about to have sex with one or two 16-year-old prostitutes.
But nearly half of those who called an online ad were stopped cold -- or nearly so -- after the woman on the phone, who was really an undercover deputy, told them she was underage. One of the men who didn't go all the way was yet another high-school teacher.
The Sheriff's Office released audio to New Times of eight of these near-busts, and we think you'll agree they're worth sharing.
Listen to the sexy-sounding female deputy try to entice these would-be johns with the promise of sex with teens, and judge for yourself whether it's a sense of humanity or fear of getting in big trouble that stops them from going to the girls' hotel room. We're also curious if you think the female deputy goes too far at some points, possibly creating temptation that borders on entrapment.
Who knows -- you might even recognize one of the voices.
Anyone who actually did go up to the room, if you saw the stories from last week, was pounced upon by deputies, arrested, and later charged with soliciting sex from a minor. One of them was Jerry Marfe, a 54-year-old high school teacher from Betty H. Fairfax High School in Laveen. He resigned quickly after his face appeared on the news.
The eight in these recordings, plus the other 17 who declined the offer of underage sex, clearly dodged a bullet. One of them says he's going up to the room, but he apparently didn't. Lieutenant Brandon Jones, an MCSO spokesman, tells us that these eight were part of the group of 25 not arrested. Deputies didn't follow up on any of those who declined, and those investigations stopped.
