Watching this evening's nightly news and was stunned to hear that the current Ottawa mayor and the current Jackson Center girls basketball coach
were both nabbed in a prostitution sting. I say stunned because you hear about these things happening everywhere, everyday...........but it's kind of hard to believe it, if you know what I mean..........

if both of these men are married, I would think they're sleeping outside tonight?

Ottawa mayor, Jackson Center coach charged in prostitution sting

OTTAWA — The mayor of Ottawa and a Jackson Center Varsity Girl's Basketball coach face solicitation charges after an investigation by the Allen County Sheriff's Office.

Around 12:45 p.m. Monday, deputies arrested Kenneth A. Maag, 61. He is a long-time mayor of Ottawa and will be charged with solicitation for prostitution, a third-degree misdemeanor.

Gregg Gooding, 57, was arrested about 5 p.m. Wednesday. Both were arrested at Econo Lodge, 1220 Neubrecht Road, Lima. Gooding was charged with solicitation for prostitution and posted a $500 bond Thursday. He is scheduled to be arraigned at 2 p.m. Friday, according to Lima Municipal Court records.

Sheriff Sam Crish said the prostitution investigation began Wednesday and is ongoing. The men were allegedly in contact with a woman through telephone and text messaging a while before the arrests.

“What we did was a short-term undercover operation,” Crish said.

Maag's current term as mayor began in Jan. 1, 2008, and ends Dec. 31. He is running unopposed for reelection. He made $14,608.45 in 2010. Neither he nor Ottawa Village officials could be reached for comment.

Gooding led Jackson Center Varsity Girl's Basketball to a Division IV state tournament victory in March 2001. He also works in maintenance for Jackson Center Local Schools, according to the district's website. Neither he or school officials could be reached for comment.

At this point, Crish said he doesn't expect additional arrests but said reports of prostitution will continue to be investigated. A separate prostitution sting about two weeks ago targeting areas between South Main and South Elizabeth streets and West Vine and West Kibby streets resulted in the arrest of a local pastor and five others. “This is something that we're actively addressing,” Crish said.

If those men are married, are their wives that worthless and marriages that meaningless to them?? Makes me sick.

Since they are both around 60, it's possible the wives are thankful for a pinch hitter every once in a while

How is the mayor of Ottawa only making $14,000/year? :pav

Not really surprising though. We all need hookers from time to time since women upped their irrational lives from reality shows.

Rocket....was this thread really needed? Most people will find news like this on their own. It would have been bad enough if one of the members started it, knowing full well that nothing good will come from it. The fact that you felt the need to start it yourself is really kind of pathetic.

If he is doing a good job as mayor, quite frankly, I couldn't care less what he does.
