Child Services Employee Among Dozens Arrested In Prostitution Sting

SUN VALLEY (CBS) — Over 30 people, including a Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services employee, were arrested Thursday in an undercover prostitution sting involving female officers who posed as hookers.

Mark Anthony Moton, 42, was on duty and driving a county-issued vehicle when he solicited a prostitute and was subsequently arrested, police said.

Moton works closely with children under the DCFS’ care and monitors court ordered visits with families. He has also been accredited as an outstanding staff member by the department, DCFS officials told CBS2.

The operation was conducted from 4 a.m. Wednesday to 12 a.m. Thursday on Lankershim Boulevard between San Fernando Road and Neenach Street, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Officials say the area is known for a high volume of prostitution activity.

Moton will be placed on unpaid administrative leave during the criminal proceedings, Philip Browning, Director of the DCFS, said.

Moton posted bail on Thursday and will make his first court appearance on March 28.

    What a lucky guy. He will now be forced into retirement with full benefits well over a million dollars a year. He hit the jackpot getting busted. California will now reward him big time.

    #1, Why? It’s not like he’s a politician. I’d understand if it was child pornography, as that would be a conflict of interest.

      can’t even get a job.That’s because that aS$hole lawyer Robert Hale from Hale and Nguyen in Brea couldn’t help me with my case. Now I’m a bitter aS$puck that has a beef with law enforcement and everybody on the internet. I used multiple screen names like [GROW..APAIR], [wg//af], [up//yours], [Mike in San Diego], [Mike in Upland], [1stman] and [kma] so no one can track me down. I challenge people to meet me in front of the Fullerton P.D. station for my protection. I’m such a puS$y dumbf**k with nothing to say I post to myself copying sentences from everyone, especially GROWAPAIR, who knows I’m a ball sniffing loser.

      I’ll use your screen name next, puS$y d!cklips,.

      Pay attention to me when I hijack screen names to show I’m a whiny puS$y dumbf**k loser. It makes my ass pucker with joy when people think I’m GROWAPAIR and my daddy’s balls like it when my ass puckers. Tell me how I can sound any more f**king stupid,

    1. CALIFORNIA THE STATE WHERE GROWAPAIR'S DADDYS BALLS ARE UP ITS AS$ says:

      So how does banning Prop 8 personally affect all you puS$y dumbf**ks, especially that limp d!ck aS$breath that is always talking about Fullerton P.D. and licking balls? It’s not like any of you do anything with your balls except play with them.

    What red-blooded American Man doesn’t solicit or want to solicit a prostitute…..Leave the “guys” alone…..prosecute the prostitute if necessary…leave the MAN ALONE!!!! Everyone’s trying to “score” some points on the job……Please GO ELSEWHERE!! These guys are NOT CRIMINALS!!!!

  6. jOAN says:

    TWO CONCENTING ADULTS (both provideing a service to the other)…..
    WHAT A TERRIBLE WASTE OF TIME & MONEY!!! MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE FOR SOCIETY & CONCENTRATE ON GOING AFTER THE DIRTY….LYING….CHEATING…POLITICIANS…….ALL OF THEM!!! THEN YOU’D EARN YOUR “BONES” & ADVANCEMENT IN THE DEPT…!!!

    1. Astonished says:

      Sure, two CONSENTING adults just doing a service for each other. Of course one of them was driving a Los Angeles County vehicle and was probably on duty, but what the heck. . .so what if he contracts some highly contagious disease and spreads it around. . .no harm no foul right?

      I don’t think so. If for no other reason, this guy was an idiot. You want to mess with the streetwalkers, do it on your own time, in your own vehicle! Keep my tax dollars out of it!

      STUPID.
