Henrietta is a town of roughly 43,000 residents, located just south of Rochester in Monroe County, New York. Prostitution activity has been reported in the town.
In April 2014, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office conducted a self-described “sting” operation at “multiple Henrietta hotels,” resulting in the arrest of eight individuals. Among the arrestees were three men charged with patronizing prostitution, and five women charged with prostitution. Although the names and ages of each of the offenders were released to the public, details about the operation (i.e., whether or not traditional “reverse” sting tactics were used) was not disclosed.
