Two charged with prostitution

Just one week after being released from a state prison and placed on parole, Angela Marie Burns began “prostituting to make money,” state police alleged in court papers.

The 28-year-old woman advertised her “business” on an escort website, police said.

After an undercover state trooper contacted her via text messaging on March 10, the two agreed to meet in the city’s Newberry neighborhood the next day, according to an affidavit. After getting into the trooper’s unmarked car, Burns, of 611 Howard St., allegedly offered to provide sexual favors.

She has been charged with one misdemeanor count of prostitution and sent a summons to appear before District Judge Jon E. Kemp.

Also charged with prostitution was Kevin Scott Hamilton, 58, of 151 Spike Lane, Fairfield Township, police said. The charge stemmed from the same investigation and that Hamilton allegedly offered the woman $100 to perform a sexual act for him in Clinton Township on March 9. He too has been sent a summons to appear before Kemp.
