Monica Gonzalez was arrested in Brooklyn last November on charges of prostitution. The evidence? She was walking alone at night, and allegedly had a condom in her possession (a fact she refutes). The arresting officer also claimed she had been arrested for prostitution before (Her record is spotless, though the arresting officer, Sean Spencer, has been sued in the past for false arrest).
In reality? Gonzalez had an asthma attack earlier in the day, her medication wasn’t working, and so she decided to walk four blocks to the emergency room later that night, get some help, and be back in time to send the kids off to school in the morning.
I wasn’t aware carrying a condom tantamount to wearing a scarlett P. Hell, if that’s the case, half the people I know are prostitutes. Ugh.
Luckily, the court has recently dropped charges against her. I hope she sues the crap out of the city.
