Nottingham Red Light District

Postby admin » 24 Aug 2008, 09:57

Police are hailing a four-day operation against prostitution in Nottingham as a success.

A total of 32 men were caught trying to buy sex from an undercover officer in the Mapperley and Arboretum areas. Some will now attend a special course. This year 47 men have attended the Change Programme and so far none has reoffended.

Insp Andy Rooke said the so-called "test purchase" operations would continue in the future. He said: "We use it on a regular basis. We've used it in the past and we'll continue to use it. "It does help us to tackle some of the kerb crawling issues, but we also use high-visibility patrols.

"We have technology that we use as well to try to identify people that are in the area that shouldn't be."

I don't like this "honey-trap" tactic being used in this context. If it was to catch a more serious, violent offender, then fair enough.

That worries me. Public roads that people shouldn't be on?

Kerb crawler fined after being caught twice

Postby admin » 07 Nov 2008, 19:07

From The Nottingham Evening Post

A 24-YEAR-old has been fined for kerb-crawling for a second time.
David Shaw was convicted in 2006 for kerb-crawling and attended the Change programme – a one-day course where offenders are encouraged to think about the consequences of their actions.

After being caught a second time, Shaw, of Windsor Court, Woodthorpe, was not eligible to attend the course again and was fined £100 and ordered to pay £70 costs.

Sgt Neil Radford, who heads up the On-street prostitution team, said: "It's important that we understand just what it means when a man walks the streets looking for a woman to pay for sex. It means that he will be assessing every female he passes to see if she is willing to have sex with him for money.

"He has no way of knowing in advance whether she is there for the same purpose or if she is a resident who is simply on her way to the shops. This kind of behaviour is unacceptable."

Postby admin » 02 Apr 2009, 21:46

A TEENAGER fell foul of a police crackdown on prostitution in Nottingham, a court heard. Simon Burgess, 19, approached two women after a night out. But the women were undercover police officers who were posing as prostitutes.

At Nottingham Magistrates' Court, Burgess, of Hereford Road, Bakersfield, pleaded guilty to persistently soliciting a person or persons for the purpose of prostitution.

Prostitution down in Nottingham

Postby admin » 11 May 2009, 19:56

THE number of prostitutes in Nottingham has decreased by more than a third in the last five years.

Sgt Neil Radford, who leads the On Street Prostitution Team, which is part of Community Protection, said the reduction is due to Nottingham having a dedicated team working to get prostitutes off the streets – which has seen the number decrease from about 300 to 80 in the last five years.

Decision upheld not to prosecute man for asking for sex

Postby admin » 10 Feb 2010, 19:46

A TOP Judge has ruled that a case where a man asked an undercover policewoman for sex in a known red light district in Notts should not be reopened.

Lord Justice Elias upheld a decision not to prosecute a man for a public nuisance offence after he approached the officer posing as a prostitute in Mapperley Road and agreed a price for sex.

Lord Justice Elias said that a single incident of asking a woman for sex in a red light district could not amount to a nuisance.

This could be a very important ruling - would be interesting to see the official transcript, as newspaper reports need to be taken with a pinch of salt!

The BBC have a fuller report

However, Lord Justice Elias said the attempt was "quite hopeless" and upheld the ruling a single incident of asking a woman for sex in a known red light district could not amount to a nuisance.

He added "a single, otherwise lawful, act" does not become a criminal offence just because other people are carrying out "similar, otherwise lawful, activity" in the same area.
Observing prosecuting authorities were using "wholly artificial" concepts to criminalise lawful conduct which they considered to be "reprehensible", Lord Justice Elias urged all courts to have "no truck with it".

Possibly only until April when I believe section 19 of the Policing and Crime Act comes in to force.

This section effectively drops the 'persistently' from the definition of soliciting.

Girl came to Nottingham to get some work

Postby admin » 15 Feb 2010, 23:27

A PROSTITUTE came to work in Nottingham because she was too well-known in her home city of Birmingham, a court heard. Deborah Neely was spotted on January 29 as she made provocative poses on Forest Road West and tried to make eye contact with people passing by.

Nottingham Magistrates' Court heard she had been working as a prostitute since she was 18. She receives Jobseeker's Allowance, but needs extra money to fund her alcohol habit.

At least she was trying to earn some money instead of turning to other crimes such as theft etc.

Not sure what these cases actually do for the women involved or society in the long-term, apart from attract punters to the streets and make the rest of society avoid the area.
