AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A pregnant woman who police said had a heroin addiction was arrested on prostitution charges.

Alicia Kimak, 27, is charged with soliciting sex and possession of criminal tools.

An undercover officer contacted Kimak, who had an advertisement on Backpage.com under the dating section, a police report said. Police said the advertisement said, “I’m a genuine girl next door seeking a respectful and generous gentleman to please and please me…. I’m a good conversationalist, have a great body and a pretty face…”
