Deputies say they have received numerous complaints about prostitution at the location so an undercover officer posed as a massage client.
“Our detectives went in there and set up a sting,” said Sergeant Stephanie Eller, with the sheriff’s office.
The undercover deputy and Li Lu Jennings agreed on $50 for a half hour massage.
During the massage, Jennings offered to massage “extra things,” reports said.
When the massage was nearly over, Jennings offered to massage his genitals for an extra $50, reports said.
After Jennings began massaging his genitals, a prearranged takedown signal was given and Jennings was arrested.
After her arrest, deputies explained the reason for her arrest. She then said, “I was only rubbing here,” and made a hand motion over her genital area, reports said.
She also stated that she only rubbed his stomach and girls usually got $50 to massage “that area,” again pointing to her genitals, reports said.
“It went a little farther in this case, most likely because of the fact that she is a licensed masseuse, so what she was offering, we didn’t know if it was going to meet something that would have met the description of a sex crime,” Sgt. Eller said.
Jennings was charged with one count of prostitution.
Jennings is a licensed massage therapist in the state of Florida.
