Hearing Set for Moon Prostitution Suspect

Police say the alleged sex worker was working in the Pittsburgh airport area.

A Chicago woman agreed to meet with an undercover Moon Township detective to have sex in exchange for $400, police said in a report. 

Moon Police earlier this month charged Maria Elizabeth An, 41, with prostitution, promoting prostitution and possessing instruments of crime, according to court records. 

A preliminary hearing set for this week in Coraopolis District Court was continued. 

The woman advertised prostitution services on the adult website Eros.com, saying she was a 25-year-old escort working for her first time in Pittsburgh at an airport-area hotel, according to the complaint. 

An undercover officer agreed to meet with her Sept. 10 at the Embassy Suites in Moon. Police said in the complaint that she agreed to have sex in exchange for money.

Officers seized an iPad, condoms and $98 in cash from the woman.

A new hearing is set for Oct. 16 in Coraopolis.

Glad to hear the police are getting after these women. They populate the local Craig's List as well as most other personals' sites.........

Yeah its great to see police do their jobs. I lost my wife to cancer and do see a pro for sex as i work very long hours and am older so i meet few women to date so a once in awhile meeting keeps my outlook positive instead of depressed. Legal prostitution could save the city money and keep things regulated. Isnt pornography someone being paid for sex? We are wasting money on police chasing after pros.
