Students from the University of Miami and Florida International University were arrested yesterday during a prostitution sting in Coral Gables.
Acacia Friedman, a 23-year-old from UM, Maury Noun, age 21 from UM, and Samara Charlotin, a 19-year-old FIU student were all charged with prostitution after an undercover police investigation on Wednesday night.
Friedman and Charlotin were said to have met with and undercover detective at the Colonnade Hotel after they agreed to have sex for $5,000.
Once inside the Colonnade, the detective handed Friedman the money and asked for reassurance as to what was happening.
Both Friedman and Charlotin faced additional charged for having drugs on them.
Noun was charged with aiding or abetting prostitution.
Local 10 news reported the judge saying, “You’re a smart girl, and if you want to see age 20, you need to find a new line of employment…. A very risky thing you are doing, alright, for someone with a lot of potential such as yourself. You need to stay away from them.”
UM has declined information about the ongoing investigations.
