The men agree to pay the woman and meet them at a Shippensburg hotel for sex acts, according to the Cumberland County District Attorney Seán M. McCormack.

The following men have been charged with one count of prostitution and related offenses, according to PSP:

  • Jared Dennis Stoner, 23, of Chambersburg.

Cumberland County District Attorney Seán M. McCormack commented on the operations:

 “Since we began these operations targeting sex buyers who drive the demand for commercial sex, we have arrested 45 individuals. Every single dollar that a sex trafficker makes comes out of the wallet of a sex buyer. They are the ones driving sex trafficking by putting money into the hands of the sex traffickers who exploit the women and men trapped in this existence. We are going to continue these operations.”
