BACKGROUND

Hill said Dorsey is a “known prostitute” and is a suspect in a series of robberies of men who solicited her services on the internet.

“Everyone engaging in the dangerous activity of soliciting prostitution from the internet is placing themselves at extreme risk until Ashanti is caught,” Hill said. “They should seriously consider refraining from this illegal activity in the future.”
