Woman accused of soliciting

May 10, 2008|By Justin Fenton

Anne Arundel County police have charged a 22-year-old West River woman with prostitution - and say charges are pending against her husband, who is accused of facilitating some of her rendezvous.

Elizabeth Jeffers of the 5700 block of Muddy Creek Road was charged with engaging and soliciting prostitution after police say she advertised an escort service on Craigslist.org, which police said she operated with the help of her husband.

A vice detective answered a posting on the Web site, where Jeffers reportedly used the name Ann. Officials say she instructed the detective to come to her home, where she offered him an erotic massage followed by a sex act of his choice for $170. She told him in phone conversations that she was trying to earn money to buy a car, according to charging documents.

Jeffers was arrested after cash was exchanged at her home, police said. She was released on $3,000 bond yesterday. According to court papers, she has children and is unemployed, and has been charged as recently as last month with theft under $500.

Police said Jeffers' 24-year-old husband, Robert, provided her transportation and received some of the money from her transactions. Police said charges were pending against him.
