The state's case against Breshannon Deveraux, 33, of Martinsburg, was mistakenly assigned to Magistrate W.

And, the city might also consider an innovative anti-prostitution program that started this year in Tucson, Ariz.

tarar@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG - A pastor and president of the Berkeley County Planning Commission charged Wednesday with soliciting prostitution was described by a colleague Thursday as an "outstanding and upstanding" man who has made years worth of good planning decisions. But the Rev. Raymond G. Brosius Jr.'s alleged decision to pay a woman $20 to perform a sex act would be a "stupid mistake," if proven true, said John Jeans, who serves on the planning commission with Brosius.
