Brookville, PA – One man was caught in a prostitution and human trafficking sting in Brookville recently.
Brookville Police were tipped off and started an investigation on Jan. 19. By Jan. 21, their undercover agent had been contacted by 50-year-old Edwin Botwright of Brockway who was looking to pay for sex.
When the officer told the man that the only girls available were 15 and 17 years old, the person was interested and asked to see photos.
