Lane Tech teacher cleared in pros­ti­tu­tion case

Chicago Sun-Times - - News -

Charges were dropped against a Lane Tech com­puter teacher ar­rested last month for al­legedly keep­ing a place of pros­ti­tu­tion.

Scott Carl­son, 41, a teacher at the Chicago pub­lic school since 2002, was cleared Tues­day for rent­ing a ho­tel room near Mid­way Air­port that be­came the scene of an un­der­cover pros­ti­tu­tion sting, of­fi­cials said.

The ar­rest Dec. 10 hap­pened when a sher­iff’s un­der­cover of­fi­cer who re­sponded to an ‘‘es­cort’’ ad on a so­cial net­work­ing site agreed to meet a 21-year-old woman, of­fi­cials said.

Once in the room, the woman al­legedly of­fered to have sex with the un­der­cover of­fi­cer for money and was ar­rested for pros­ti­tu­tion. A re­ceipt for the room showed it was rented to and paid for by Carl­son, 2300 block of West Thomas, who was ar­rested in the ho­tel park­ing lot, where he had been wait­ing for the woman, of­fi­cials said.
