A New York Criminal Lawyer has learned of a close friend of President Obama who was arrested in Hawaii for allegedly patronizing prostitution. Unfortunately for him, this prostitute was an undercover police officer.
The 49-year-old man was caught in “a reverse prostitution operation by Honolulu police,” police sources revealed.
The resident of the state of Hawaii, a childhood friend of President Obama, was one of four men who were arrested in that sting, involving police officers who would lure in would-be johns through a phony escort site on the Internet, local news reported.
The suspect was released at 11 p.m. the same night of his arrest, after posting $500 bail for the crime, which is only a misdemeanor. It was not the first arrest for him, however. A Bronx Criminal Lawyer has learned that the suspect, who has been a commercial fisherman and an airline worker, was also arrested back in 1987 on drunken driving charges. In that case, his driver’s license was suspended for 90 days and he had to pay a fine of $150.
The latest incident was about 45-minutes by car from his home, which lies on the North Shore of Oahu. This home has been host to Obama, his wife Michelle, and their two daughters, Sasha and Malia, in the past.
Just a few months ago, Obama spent a day of his Christmas vacation at the suspect’s home to attend an annual luau. The suspect also played golf with the president over the weekend.
Obama, also 49-years-old, spent many years of his youth in Hawaii. His half-sister still lives in the state. The suspect and the president attended the same high school, as well, though they were a year apart.
On Obama’s 49th birthday, he and the suspect played golf, just outside of Washington, along with other friends from Hawaii.
The White House issued no comment on the arrest. He is due to face the charge on May 2, 2011.
