Grab N Go Espresso Stand Baristas Charged with Prostitution
The Grab N Go Espresso stand in Everett, Washington, has had five of their baristas charged with prostitution for performing sexual acts while working.
This violates the city's adult entertainment law according to police spokesman Robert Goetz.
No sex was involved, but the women, ages 18 to 24, are accused of groping each other and licking cream off each other, exposing their breasts and their privates in exchange for money.
The police received complaints two months ago and they launched an undercover investigation. The five women are expected to be arraigned in municipal court in a few weeks.
On Thursday morning, the stand's owner, Bill Wheeler, said the charges are false.
Because the charges are misdemeanors, the women have not been taken into custody and the coffee stand remains open.
