Scott Township is a township of about 17,000 residents in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Prostitution is not considered a widespread problem in the city, but cases have been documented, and some of the police activity in response has focused on demand. For example, in April 2018 Police arrested a man after he allegedly tried to pay nearly $200 in cash for sex in Scott Township, and he faced prostitution charges in Columbia County. The suspect had arrived at a specified location in nearby Scott Township about 6 p.m. Friday with money in anticipation of sex and oral sex. Police charged him with four misdemeanors: criminal solicitation, criminal attempt-patronizing prostitutes, and two counts of patronizing prostitutes. The man was released from jail after posting 10% of a $5,000 bond, according to online jail records.
