Police: Ohio Man Ran Hooker-Review Web Site


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Columbus police have arrested a man they say was responsible for a Web site where customers could post reviews of prostitutes.

Robert Eric McFadden is accused of trading information about online escorts and prostitutes who worked the streets, including a 17-year-old girl. Police say he also helped organize a $10-a-ticket raffle that offered an evening with a prostitute.

The 46-year-old McFadden was arrested Wednesday and faces numerous charges, including compelling prostitution involving a minor.

No attorney for McFadden was listed with the Franklin County Jail.

McFadden formerly served as director of the Faith-Based and Community Initiatives office under Gov. Ted Strickland. He was transferred to a job with the state prisons department in 2007 and laid off in March 2008 due to budget cuts.
