A 42-year-old man was convicted Tuesday of attempting to pay for sexual acts during an undercover prostitution sting.
Defendant Poshen Wu was convicted of one misdemeanor count of Soliciting, Engaging or Agreeing to Engage in Prostitution by Providing Compensation.
During trial, it was noted that the defendant was searching on Backpage.com and decided to contact a prostitute for the “full experience.”
On the initial phone call he gave his name as "John" and arranged for the “full experience" at $100 for 30 minutes.
According to Deputy District Attorney Allison Fung, who prosecuted the case, once the defendant arrived at the correct hotel room, he wasted no time and leaped into the undercover deputy’s arms in an attempt to start the “full experience” by kissing her as soon as he walked into the room.
Wu was sentenced to 30 days in County Jail and 3 years of probation.
