Manhattan Won’t Prosecute Prostitution—But Will Still Go After Clients


Manhattan’s district attorney announced Wednesday that his office will no longer prosecute prostitution and unlicensed massage under a new policy that’s believed to be the first of its kind in New York. Cyrus Vance Jr. also appeared virtually in Manhattan Criminal Court to request the dismissal of more than 900 such cases dating back to the 1970s, according to a press release. He moved to dismiss another 5,000 cases related to the state’s controversial anti-loitering statute, which New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo repealed in February.
