City of Newburgh, NY - On June 27, 2018 the City of Newburgh Police Department, Orange County Drug Task Force and New York State Police – Troop F, Community Narcotics Enforcement Team, conducted a joint “Prostitution sting”, in the City of Newburgh, N.Y. Four (4) females were arrested and charged with Prostitution, a Class “B” misdemeanor.

My office will continue to seek dispositions where those who have acted as prostitutes can get the assistance they need to escape that destructive lifestyle, and will continue to punish those who patronize prostitutes.”
