S.J. suburban 'escorts' charged as hookers


Three South Jersey residents and two from Philadelphia have been charged with prostitution-related offenses after a month long joint investigation between Cherry Hill and Mount Laurel police into ads on the website

Police say the women advertised themselves as escorts but were really prostitutes based on the services offered.

Officials say the goal was to expose the escorts for what they really were and to deter women from engaging in such acts in the future. The acts took place in local hotels and motels, police say.

Charged with prostitution-related offenses were: 

-Heather Lynn Moore, 31, of Sycamore Ave., Haddon Heights, Camden County.

-Amber Hopkins, 24, of of East Alleghney Ave., Philadelphia.

-Mary Hentz, 24, of Garnett Drive, Burlington, Burlington County (also charged with drug offenses)

-Michele Andrea Lee, 23, of Devon Ave., Bellmawr, Camden County (also charged with drug offenses)

-William Jordan, 39, of Lucas Lane Voorhees, Camden County (charged with promoting prostitution and drug offenses.

-Asif Baksh, 24, of Ditman Street, Philadelphia (charged with promoting prostitution)
