WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - Men from Wisconsin Dells to St. Paul Minnesota were caught in an online prostitution sting in Wausau.
Police released the suspects' names Thursday -- including Wausau elementary school teacher Aaron Kottke, who resigned this week as a 5th-grade instructor in the wake of his citation.
School officials said they had no indication that Kottke had harmed any students. The School Board will take up his resignation on Monday night.
Police said the men responded to an online prostitution ad they placed, as part of a renewed effort to prevent the world's oldest profession from taking hold in Wausau.
Instead of issuing criminal charges, the city now gives out $2,000 non-criminal tickets to violators.
