New Lenox Man Caught in Sex Act Arrested for Solicitation, Prostitution: Cops

The pair was charged after being discovered inside a car in a Jewel-Osco store parking lot, Joliet police said.

A couple found in flagrante delicto inside a car parked at a Jewel-Osco were arrested Wednesday night and charged, respectively, with prostitution and solicitation of a sexual act, Joliet Police Cmdr. Rich Demick said.

Leonardo A. Lara, 39, of 335 Hillside Road, New Lenox, was driving in the 1500 block of West Jefferson Street at about 9 p.m. when he was flagged down by Heather White, 21, of 2717 Campbell, Joliet, Demick said.

After agreeing to perform oral sex on him in exchange for $20, White got into Lara's car and the pair drove to the parking lot of the Jewel-Osco store at Jefferson and Midland Avenue, he said. However, their rendezvous did not go unnoticed and the police were called.

The officer who answered the call apparently interrupted the scene before it was concluded and Lara and White were arrested, Demick said. Both admitted what took place, with Lara also telling police he didn't have the $20 to pay White, he said.

Each was released on a signature bond pending an April 16 court hearing.

White has had numerous arrests in the past, according to Will County jail records, including one for possession of a controlled substance by the Crest Hill Police Department on Jan. 7.

$20, eh. It's cost me a grand to get my wife to do the same. He didn't even have the $20 to pay her ? I imagine she would have gotten a little mad when she found out. Don't they usually insist on prepayment?

Leonardo Lara should be charged for non payment of services rendered. Its business, its the American way.

Maybe the claim of non-payment is a legal defense. Can it be prostitution without money rendered?

90%? Really? Where did you dig this "fact" up, Angelo? Your imagination I presume. If whites are 90% of the perverts in crime why is it that the nations of Europe and European descent (Canada, United States) being flooded with various brown and or Muslim refuse? It's because we (whites) have the safest and best nations on Earth.
