HARRISBURG, Pa. - Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced a former Pennsylvania state constable pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution and obstructing justice.
George Bottomley was accused of withholding serving warrants on women in exchange for sex, according to officials.
Bottomley worked in Lansford, Carbon County, and was arrested in April 2017 after an investigation revealed he abused his official authority by soliciting at least seven women, officials say, for sex in exchange for money to pay their fines or overlooking warrants.
Officials say Bottomley could face a fine of up to $65,000 and possible jail time. His sentencing is scheduled for May 25.
