Two men were charged for a prostitution sting in Fergus Falls this spring.
Kevin Lee Bolles, 37, of Moorhead, and James Joseph Caswell, 29, were each charged in Otter Tail County District Court with one felony count of solicitation, inducement and promotion of prostitution. They had their first court appearances May 30.
According to the criminal complaint, Bolles had texted with an informant from April 21 to May 21 stating he had three willing girls (ages 21, 25, 28) available and asked if the informant was looking to “hook up.” The informant reportedly made a pre-payment with a credit card of $250, and a sting was set up by the West Central Minnesota Drug Task Force May 28 at a Fergus Falls motel.
Bolles, Caswell and a woman showed up at the motel and the informant gave $300 to the woman, the report says. Bolles allegedly was to get part of the payment for driving Caswell and the woman to the motel from Fargo.
The next court appearances for Bolles and Caswell are scheduled for June 10.
