Martinsburg woman faces prostitution charge

August 29, 2012

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A woman accused of prostitution in Martinsburg Tuesday night allegedly agreed to accept $20 from a police officer who was patrolling on a motorcycle in downtown Martinsburg, according to Berkeley County Magistrate Court records.

Michelle Kimberly Wolfe, 31, of 487 Porter Ave. in Martinsburg, was arraigned Wednesday by Berkeley County Magistrate Joan V. Bragg on one misdemeanor count of prostitution, according to court documents.

While patrolling in the 100 block of North Queen Street Tuesday night, Martinsburg Police Sgt. J.E. Darby said Wolfe approached him at about 9:40 p.m. and asked for a cigarette, according to court documents.

Darby, who was dressed in plain clothes, said Wolfe asked him at one point in their conversation whether he was a police officer because she had a friend who was “busted” by a police officer on a motorcycle, according to court documents.

Darby said Wolfe went on to ask him how he could prove to her that he was not a police officer before she ultimately agreed to meet him at a specific place to exchange money for oral sex.

Darby said Wolfe indicated she wanted $30, but eventually agreed to accept $20, according to court documents.
