Myrtle Beach, SC - MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A 40-year-old woman is facing prostitution charges after police claim she solicited sex from an undercover officer Monday.

Myrtle Beach Police say the undercover officer was patrolling an area of 14th Avenue South when he spotted a woman walking along Ocean Boulevard and proceeded to pick her up.

The woman, identified as Joan Hussey, 40, of Myrtle Beach, entered the backseat of the car and proceeded to make a prostitution deal with the officer. An incident report indicates the woman offered the officer sexual favors for $40.

A traffic stop by on-duty officers led to Hussey's arrest, which resulted in charges of prostitution being pressed against the woman.

Hussey, who later admitted to making a $40 deal for sex, was transported to the Myrtle Beach Jail.
