Dad brings 3-year-old daughter along while meeting prostitute (Daytona Beach, Florida)

Dad is identified as JAMIE ESPOSITO. Why was this little girl in Daddy's care anyway? Where is her mother? Notice that there is ZERO mention of her, and that the little girl is now in the grandfather's care. WHY? What happened to Mom?


Police sting: Father brings along 3-year-old while meeting prostitute
 DAYTONA BEACH -- Police arrested 17 people in a two-day prostitution sting along Ridgewood Avenue this week, including a father who had his 3-year-old daughter with him at the time.
The sting, conducted Thursday and Friday, resulted in arrests of eight men and nine women, according to police reports released today.

The men included Jamie Esposito, the 27-year-old Orlando father who had a toddler in his SUV when he drove up to an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute.

"I know you got your baby, so I'll make it quick," the officer said, according to an arrest report. After agreeing on a price and arranging to go inside a hotel room, the officer told Esposito he could bring his daughter inside to watch TV during the encounter, the report said.

In addition to solicitation of prostitution, Esposito was charged with child neglect, police said. His daughter was released to her grandfather.

Police said the stings are part of a continuing effort to clean up the city's part of Ridgewood Avenue. Many of the arrests were made in areas around Fremont Avenue and Wilder Boulevard.

Other men charged:

Donald Brown of DeBary, Frederick Bismarck of Daytona Beach, Jason Burns of Palm Coast, Herbert Foster of Eustis, Valdimar Sigfusson of Ormond Beach, Stephen Hagg of Port Orange and Stephen Adams of Ormond Beach.

All were charged with solicitation to commit prostitution, and Foster was also charged with resisting arrest after he ran from police.

The women charged with solicitation of prostitution were:

Wanda Bratcher, Kara Pennington, Adrianna Gardner, Heather Mishook and Gertie Kearse, all of Daytona Beach, Darlene Dixon and Jennifer Lahive of Holly Hill and Jessica Walker of Palmetto, Ga.

Another woman, Shannon DeAngelis of St. Augustine, was charged with solicitation of a lewd act after police said she demanded an officer expose himself -- to prove he wasn't a cop before she got in his car.
