As you might know prostitution is illegal in Las Vegas and only legal in certain counties of Nevada which are usually a distance from major cities. The police now demand the women to take a blood test for HIV when arrested. (16) of the women that the police busted were found to be HIV positive. They were also told that if they had sex with a customer after the arrest knowing they were positive they would be responsible for other violations. The interesting thing here is that these guys are NOT Media hype, this is a factual show that records actual Police action. This shows that there are actually prostitutes that exist who are HIV positive in Nevada. These were NOT crack whores wondering the streets but attractive well dressed women that were working for escort companies.
