WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A public school teacher in Wausau has resigned, after he and six others were ticketed under a new city ordinance aimed at discouraging prostitution.
Police said the men were caught in an online sting last month, in which officers posed as prostitutes to catch those who were seeking their business.
The new ordinance allows police to give out $2,000 tickets, instead of filing criminal charges. Officials did not publicly identify the men.
One of them wrote a letter of resignation to the Wausau School District Tuesday, and the School Board will act on it next Monday.
Superintendent Kathleen Williams said the safety of students was not put at risk by the teacher.
