Iowa Minister Jonathan Offt Arrested Trying To Pay For Sex

Marion, Iowa

Like most men, Jonathan Offt was looking for a little sex. In his case, however, a few problems exist. First, he is a married father of three. Second, he was willing to pay for sex.  Oh, and there is that little fact of him serving as senior pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church and School in Cedar Rapids.

Offt, 41, was one of nine men nabbed in a recent prostitution sting by Marion Police. Like the others, Offt responded to an Internet ad placed by police. Once on the scene and after offering an undercover officer money in exchange for a sexual act, Offt and the other men were arrested.

Since his arrest, Offt has remained tight-lipped. However, on the website for Trinity Lutheran Church and School, business director Pat Ehler posted the following:

“Trinity Lutheran Church and School is saddened by the most recent news story regarding Jonathan Offt. The proper authorities are handling the situation. The church and school request your prayers for all involved. We have no further comments at this time.”

Lawyer Charged With Prostitution?

Reema Bajaj

Chicago, Illinois

This story confuses the hell out of me. Sure, I know that lawyers often have a reputation for screwing people, but literally? A young attorney who received her law license last year has been charged with prostitution, officials say.

Reema Bajaj, 25, of Sycamore, pleaded not guilty Thursday in DeKalb County, according to her attorney David Camic of Aurora.

While police were investigating another case, they allegedly found evidence that linked Bajaj to prostitution that occurred in August 2010. She’s now facing a felony charge, because the incident occurred within 1,000 feet of a school. Otherwise, a misdemeanor would have been in order.

Actually, Bajaj was not practicing law at the time. She graduated from Northern Illinois University Law School in 2010 and was admitted to the bar in November.

Aside from the previous incident, Bajaj allegedly offered to perform a sex act last month with a man for $50, DeKalb County Assistant State’s Attorney Julie Trevarthen said.

Bajaj faces two misdemeanor counts, along with one felony count. She is currently free on bail after posting a $500 cash bond.

My opinion? I would still definitely call on her for “legal consultation.”
