Undercover female deputies used motel rooms equipped with audio and video surveillance recording equipment to document the incidents that led to the arrests.

Arrested:

  • Joevon Everett (27), East Camden, SC

  • Kerry Taylor (44), Columbia, SC
  • Isaias Vazquez (25), West Columbia, SC

  • Charles McAfee (53), Bloomington, IL
  • Jason Kornegay (27), Lugoff, SC

Bradley was also charged with possession of cocaine and Gary was charged with possession of marijuana.

The penalty for soliciting prostitution is a maximum of 30 days in jail and a $465.00 fine.

Sheriff James Matthews tells WIS the operation was done in response to complaints from citizens.

“Although prostitution is not real high on our priority list, when we receive information on it being a problem we will address it,” said Matthews. “Those who are involved in this activity need to know that we will not turn a blind eye to it.”
