One of the eight people cited in the Wausau prostitution sting is a teacher in the Wausau School District.

Jeff Graff of the Wausau School District Human Resources says they are not able to comment or release an official statement today (8/4). But he says they are "looking into the matter".

An investigator also tells us police are working with the school district. The names of those cited in the June 26th prostitution sting are not yet being released. But we do know a Wausau School District teacher responded to bogus ads for prostitutes posted by undercover Wausau Police Officers.

"I'm a teacher," the man said, "I'm so embarrassed, my family is going to be so embarrassed..."

That man was one of more than 60 people responding to the ads within seven hours after they were posted. Those cited, including the Wausau teacher, were issued $2,000 fines.

These are the first people in Wausau getting a citation for prostitution in stead of being taken to jail. A criminal conviction for soliciting a prostitute would result in a permanent record. The ordinance, only weeks old, allows the city to collect and keep fine money instead of suggesting criminal charges.
