Somerville Police arrested a Randolph woman in an undercover prostitution sting last week after she allegedly offered sex for a fee via the internet.
Diane Richardson, 60, was arrested on a charge of sexual conduct for a fee on Thursday, Oct. 31 at the Holiday Inn at 30 Washington Street in Somerville.
According to a police report, Somerville detectives were investigating a woman who was allegedly offering sex for a fee online and set up a meeting between an undercover police officer and the woman at the hotel Thursday evening.
When the undercover detective went to the hotel room, police said the woman later identified as Richardson, answered the door in provocative attire and then requested $125 for a half hour of sexual activity, according to police. Once the money changed hands, the woman undressed and offered the undercover detective a condom, police said.. The detective then gave a signal to fellow detectives, and police entered the room and placed Richardson under arrest.
