Man arrested for 'soliciting prostitute' … on honeymoon

Mohammed AhmedYou’ve heard the expression “the honeymoon is over.” For recent newlywed Mohammed Ahmed, the honeymoon was over before it started. The Daily Mail reports that the 21-year-old Illinois man was arrested for soliciting a prostitute while on his honeymoon with his new wife in Florida.

Ahmed was among 92 people nabbed in a prostitution sweep conducted by Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

The alleged john answered an online ad, on website Backpage.com, which, to his horror, turned out to be planted by an undercover deputy as part of the four-day operation.

Ahmed left his newlywed in their room at the Omni Hotel in Champions Gate when he went off on his sojourn to pay for sex.

“Left his newlywed in their room” to go have sex? What was she — chopped liver? And if your sympathies aren’t already with the wife, the poor girl became worried when hubby never returned and phone the sheriff’s office to report him missing.

That was when she first learned that he was not missing. He was in the pokey, having been booked on charges of soliciting prostitution and possession of marijuana.

Sheriff Grady Judd said in a statement:

Prostitution is illegal, and those who commit or who derive proceeds from this crime in Polk County can expect to go to jail. The nexus between prostitution and other crime, such as illegal drugs, violence against women, and human trafficking is a real problem.

Cheating on your wife of a few hours is also a real problem.
