Man escapes with caution following brothel reports

A man has escaped with a caution after members of the public reported a brothel in a Sussex town.

At 7pm yesterday police visited an attended an address in Hastings following up information from the public that it was being used as a brothel.

A man and woman were arrested at the address, which police have not provided, on suspicion of causing or inciting prostitution.

The man was cautioned for this offence and the woman was released without charge. PC Simon Barden said: “Along with other officers from the neighbourhood policing team we took swift and decisive action to attend the address and deal positively with the people found on the premises.”

Well, goodness gracious me. Ladies & Gentlemen partaking in "Ladies & Gentlemen" at the seaside. Whatever next? They'll be asking for proof of marriage in hotels next.

He is a fool for accepting a caution.

He now has a criminal record and the police haven't even had to prove him guilty, if he ever was that is.

There is nothing illegal about operating from a residential premises provided there is no more than one person, aged 18 or over, providing sexual services. It would only become illegal if any coercion was involved; and then it becomes a strict liability offence.

So provided the individuals were 18 or over, and there was only a single person selling sexual favours and there was no coercion involved, he was indeed a fool to accept a caution.

The police wouldn't have had a case had they been required to present one.

So a pimp gets a caution? Disgraceful What about the immoral earnings he's got from this - they should be confiscated. Why did a woman get released without charge?

If people are committing crimes they should be fully investigated and charged. No wonder we've got such problems in society today.

More importantly what the police now have is his DNA profile, so anything he's done in the past and whatever he does in the future they take an interest in they'll know if he's involved.

That's good, if in fact they do have his DNA profile.

We should all provide DNA samples and then pretty much every significant crime would be resolved.

We could then convert police resources to prison staff and focus on keeping the persistent criminals locked away.

Everyone is a winner. Pebble counter, are you up for proving you DNA, or maybe you already have done?

I wouldn't mind providing a DNA sample except for one thing...........

Once the government have it from enough people they will not be able to stop themselves from screening it for genetic reasons or selling the database to insurance companies who will load premiums accordingly ...You know it's true

Oh jesus christ do your homework. DNA is not 100% infallible, just look at the number of false positives, lab mix-ups, elements of human error and downright incompetence of the authorities working with DNA to see why this is a terrible idea.

I was wrongfully arrested a couple of years ago and I've fought hard to have my DNA record removed from the database.

I wish people would quit with this "Well if you have nothing to hide" nonsense.

Your absolute trust in the government and the police is touching.


Seems particularly odd given your user name. And that you seem to be implying that the police manipulated the man.

I have a much greater trust of the police and government than trust in many of the people who come on this site trying to justify that wrong is right.

The sooner we get 100% DNA testing the sooner we get to clear the streets of the problem people; are you one of them by any chance?
