Washington County District Court Judge Ralph H. France II set bond during Monday hearings for three Hagerstown residents arrested early Friday during a Hagerstown Police Department prostitution sweep, court records say.

Jannelle J. Trail, 26, of 409 Linganore Ave., was charged with second-degree assault, fourth-degree sex offense and general prostitution, according to records.

Records allege Trail touched an undercover police officer inappropriately and agreed to perform a sexual act in exchange for a piece of crack cocaine at about 5:20 a.m. in the 100 block of West Washington Street.

Trail was being held on $7,500 bond at the Washington County Detention Center, a spokesman there said.

Bobbie J. Raigner, 20, of 161/2 Lee St., was charged with second-degree assault and a fourth-degree sex offense, records say.

Records allege Raigner touched the same undercover officer inappropriately inside a car at about 4:55 a.m. on West Franklin Street.

Raigner was being held on $5,000 bond at the detention center, a spokesman said.


Robert W. Nelson Jr., 39, of 713 S. Potomac St., was charged with general prostitution and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, records say.

Records allege Nelson offered to perform a sexual act on an undercover officer for $15 at about 4:45 a.m. in the first block of South Prospect Street. Devices commonly used to smoke crack cocaine were found during a search, according to records.

Nelson was being held on $5,000 bond at the detention center, a spokesman said.
