Breaking the law makes it rather difficult to make a complaint to the police, and one 90-year-old man learned this lesson the hard way.
Nicholas Salerno, from Cape Cod Massachusetts allgedly called Dennis police department earlier this year to report a theft that had taken place in his home, where a woman allegedly stole his gold chain.
Except according to The Smoking Gun, who published the report initially filed by the police, Salerno had paid the woman $100 (just under £80) for oral sex.
Soliciting sex for a fee is very illegal.
The police officer had apparently informed Salerno of this fact, and told him if he continued with pressing charges, he would also be charged with a soliciting offence.
