Is $34 Actually The Going Rate In Florida For That Service?
Meet Ryan Burdette.
The 22-year-old Floridian was arrested this week in a prostitution sting. Burdette, cops say, responded to a Backpage.com ad posted by an undercover detective posing as a hooker.
After meeting up at a Residence Inn in Port St. Lucie, Burdette allegedly negotiated with the female undercover and arrived at a price of $34 for an act detailed in a probable cause affidavit.
Sadly, the court filing does not further describe the negotiation’s opening offer, counter proposal, or how the pair settled on such an odd price. Or if the accused john drove a hard bargain.
Burdette was charged with soliciting prostitution, a misdemeanor.
